skyskull “Dr. SkySkull” selects several notable posts each week from a miscellany of ResearchBlogging.org categories. He blogs at Skulls in the Stars.

  • Can modern day gadgets help combat prejudice? We have come so far as a society in combating prejudice, but there is clearly much more to be done.  William Lu at The Quantum Lobe Chronicles discusses attempts to use technology to study and reduce such responses.
  • Humans Ate Grains During the Middle Stone Age. Conventional thinking suggests that humans began eating and working with grains some 12,000 years ago.  Rachel at The Sage of Discovery describes fascinating anthropological evidence that this number is too low by nearly a factor of ten!
  • Virtual Reality for Treatment of PTSD. How effective is virtual reality in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder?  Dr. Shock at Dr. Shock MD PhD describes studies evaluating the use of the technique in the field.

See you next Monday!
