smalldaveDave 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.

  • Has it really been a hundred years? The MacGuffin takes a look at the legacy of the Brodmann map of the human cerebral cortex, which is in fact now in its 101st year.
  • What makes a criminal psychopath? Are they genetically a “bad person?” or did they somehow become one over time? Kevin Mitchell discusses some recent evidence.
  • Tal Yarkoni dissects a much-hyped story about whether the internet causes depression. Is the study flawed? Probably not as much as the media reports about it.
  • Mo Costandi discusses a curious illusion involving the sense of touch. Is it possible to have the sensation of a rabbit hopping not just on your arm, but above it too?
