Editor’s Selections: More on Pepper Spray, and Synaesthesia

Editor's Selections 24 Comments
By Jason Goldman

Jason GoldmanJason Goldman selects several notable posts each week from Psychology and Neuroscience. He blogs at The Thoughtful Animal.

  • By now you’ve heard a lot about how dangerous weaponized pepper spray can be, and how much more dangerous to people suffering from respiratory diseases like asthma. “Even more worrying,” writes the blogger at Neurobonkers, “is the complete lack of interest by the authorities in the lethal impact that pepper spray has on individuals who have taken stimulants such as cocaine and amphetamines.”
  • Synaesthesia has been in the news this week, and is the topic of the remaining two editor’s selections. First, Jon Brock at Cracking the Enigma writes about an interesting case of color-emotion synaesthesia.
  • Second, over at Inkfish, Elizabeth Preston asks whether “the genes promoting synesthesia have been kept around by evolution because they have a ‘hidden agenda.’”

That’s it for this week… Check back next week for more great psychology and neuroscience blogging!
