Editor’s Selections: Paleolithic astronomers, Bionic hands, and Searching for Negative Results

Editor's Selections 9 Comments

Sarah Kendrew Sarah Kendrew selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the physical sciences, chemistry, engineering, computer science, geosciences and mathematics. She blogs about astronomy at One Small Step.

Is astronomy the oldest profession? It certainly seems to go back an awful long time. I enjoyed archaeoastronomer Alun’s post on a recent paper about astronomy activities in the Paleolithic era – many, many thousands of years ago.

On Basal Science Clarified, Cath shows the latest design for a robotic hand, developed by engineers in Japan. With links to video of the bionic limb in action.

Want to find negative results? A new portal called BioNot uses clever machine learning algorithms to search PubMed and Elsevier publications for negative results. A great initiative, described here on Neurobonkers.

I’ll be back next Monday with more picks!
