Editor’s Selections: Military Training, Combating Racism, Neuroscience of Cake

Email   PrintPrint

Here are my Research Blogging Editor’s Selections for this week.

  • “Military training intends to change behaviour,” writes Alex Fradera at BPS Occupational Digest. But what sorts of long-term changes to personality might result from military training?
  • What might a blood pressure pill have to do with reducing implicit racism? Find out at the United Academics blog.
  • Finally, what are the neural correlates of cake? An important criticism of the way some neuroscience research is conducted by Bradley Voytek at Oscillatory Thoughts.

That’s it for this week… Check back next week for more great psychology and neuroscience blogging!
