ScienceSeeker Editor's Selections: Dogs, Money, Sensation & Perception, NeuroNewtons, and DSM-5


Here are my Science Seeker Editor's Selections for the past week:

Can Dogs Use Human Emotional Expressions to Identify Which Box Contains Food? New research from the Tomasello lab, ably covered at the Companion Animal Psychology blog.

Can having more money make you a worse parent? At the Science of Relationships blog, Samantha Joel explains this counterintuitive finding: Mo' Money, Mo' Problems.

Care to test your knowledge of sensation and perception? Cedar Reiner shared the final exam from his S&P course.

Scicurious asks, Does neuroscience need a Newton? Doctor Zen responds by nominating people who already qualify as the "Newtons" of neuroscience.

The DSM-5 has been finalized. Smart, sharp analysis from Vaughan Bell at Mind Hacks.

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