On Research Blogging this week:

  • Have you yawned today? Perhaps on your commute to or from school? Maybe during class or a meeting? Perhaps you're yawning right now. At Inkfish, Elizabeth Preston discusses a study that suggests yawning may be a means of cooling your brain down.
  • At Powered by Osteons, Kristina Killgrove shares a recent conference paper detailing the ways information is extracted from skeletons for research - in this case, to identify foreign women in Rome.

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