February 2nd, 2010 Editor's Selections
Dave Munger selects several notable posts each week from psychology and neuroscience. He blogs at The Daily Monthly and has a weekly column on SEEDMAGAZINE.COM.
- Two amazing posts from The Thoughtful Animal about how animals find their way home. First, ants: a series of awesome experiments on desert ants including blinfolded ants and ants on stilts. Second, gerbils. Is it just me or are gerbils actually dumber than ants?
- Have you ever wondered if time “flying by” is really a sign of how much you enjoyed yourself? BPS Research Digest covers a clever study showing how the perception of time affects enjoyment.
- Similarly, with back pain: Does moving awkwardly cause back pain or do we move awkwardly because we have a painful back? Body in Mind examines the evidence.
- Finally, is it possible to diagnose post-traumatic stress disorder using an MRI scan? It might just be, says the Corpus Callosum Blog.
