You may have already noticed it, over on the right-hand side, or on the PsiVid blog - the first in a series of monthly videos highlighting some of the most fascinating stories here at the Scientific American blog network.

The new series, SciAm Cinema, is produced by Carin Bondar and will feature some of our bloggers, their stories, images and videos. So, on the last day of each month, check out the Scientific American YouTube channel and the PsiVid blog to see the new video. We will also share it on various social networks, and on some other spots on the site.

I hope you like the January edition - I bet the videos will just get better and better as the time passes - let us know how you like them, give us feedback how to make them better.
