Editor s Selections: Speaking In Tongues, Bi-Gendered Individuals, And The Prisoner s Dilemma

|

Highlighted in my ResearchBlogging.org column this week:

  • At Geneaology of Religion, Cris Campbell has a nice summary of dissociative speech patterns—in layman’s terms, that’s to say he breaks down different ways of “speaking in tongues.”
  • The Neuroskeptic discusses a small, self-selected study on “bi-gendered” individuals which highlights the ways social pressures can color our identities.
  • At NeuroDojo, Zen Faulkes presents another examination of the prisoner’s dilemma, which is the basis for a UK game show, considering whether there are cues that could tip off the potential course of action by the participants.

I’ll be back next week with more from anthropology, philosophy, and research.
