Jason Goldman selects several notable posts each week from Psychology and Neuroscience. He blogs at The Thoughtful Animal.
- Sometimes you’re interested in new papers not for the main results that the authors present, but for some other data you see in a graph that might catch the corner of your eye. At Cracking the Enigma, Jon Brock discusses this, and a handy tool to help extract that data. The Adventures of DataThief!
- At BishopBlog, Dorothy Bishop has a nice inside-baseball sort of post about the business of publishing papers in high-impact journals. Novelty, interest and replicability.
- Having pets is a good thing, and science agrees. At Gaines, on Brains, find out about the latest research in this area: Fur-iends with Benefits.
That’s it for this week… Check back next week for more great psychology and neuroscience blogging!
