Editor’s Selections: Casinos, Hazing, and Psychosis in the City

Editor's Selections 4 Comments

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

  • Why are casinos so good at taking your money? Sure, most of the games favor the house, but there’s more to it than that. Brad Voytek explains how casinos distract.
  • Hazing is a problem for many college, military, and other sorts of membership-based organizations. If we can better understand how and why hazing happens, Amie Gordon argues at Psych Your Mind, maybe we can begin to understand how to address the problem.
  • “Abundant evidence exists,” Sandeep Gautaum writes at The Mouse Trap, “that psychosis is more prevalent in urban areas as compared to rural areas.” Find out more about why this might be the case.

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

    Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
