Editor's Selections: Colors and Stuttering


It's Thursday, so that means Research Blogging Editor's Selections!

This week you'll want to be sure you check out:

  • Quick—what color is the sky? Aatish Bhatia has a fascinating discussion on colors up at Empirical Zeal, demonstrating nicely the ways in which we construct elements of our world that seem so concrete with time.

  • And Dr. Stu gets to the bottom of stuttering, steering us away from the dominant psychological explanations with a look at what happens physiologically when we stumble over our words.

Until next time, folks. I'll be back next week with more from anthropology, philosophy, and research.

The views expressed are those of the author and are not necessarily those of Scientific American.
