Editor’s Selections: Logos, Hospitals, Stephen Colbert, and Surprising Findings

Editor's Selections 26 Comments
By Jason Goldman

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

  • You might think that labels and logos indicate power or prestige, but you’d be wrong. Find out about the complicated relationship between overt labels and power at PsySociety in a great post by Melanie Tannenbaum.
  • Can music make your hospital stay more bearable? In a post at a new (to me) blog called For the Ears, Callum James Hacket discusses some research on this question.
  • Satire is a particularly nuanced form of humor. It might not be surprising, then, that Neurobonkers reports on a study that found “Colbert’s satire is so spectacularly deadpan that research has demonstrated that a significant proportion of right wing Americans actually believe that Colbert is genuinely a right wing commentator!”
  • Finally, over at Psych Your Mind, Juli Breines lists her top five surprising social psychology findings from 2011.

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

    Interesting post right here. One thing I would like to say is the fact that most professional job areas consider the Bachelors Degree just as the entry level standard for an online course. Though Associate Certifications are a great way to start out, completing your Bachelors uncovers many doorways to various jobs, there are numerous on-line Bachelor Diploma Programs available from institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another thing is that many brick and mortar institutions give Online editions of their certifications but typically for a significantly higher payment than the providers that specialize in online degree plans.
