Jason Goldman selects several notable posts each week from Psychology and Neuroscience. He blogs at The Thoughtful Animal.
- What happens when psychologists take things too literally? They put people in boxes, that’s what. Elizabeth Preston has more at Inkfish.
- If you’re bad a music, might you also be bad at learning Chinese, a language that relies on subtle distinctions in pitch? Maybe not. Callum James Hackett has the details at For The Ears.
- “Males have bigger brains than females,” writes Doctor Zen at NeuroDojo. At least, “if those males are sticklebacks from Iceland.”
That’s it for this week… Check back next week for more great psychology and neuroscience blogging!
