Here are my Research Blogging Editor's Selections for this week:
Another week of top-notch psychology and neuroscience blogging!
- Should captive cephalopods be kept in "enriched" environments? Mike Lisieski of the Cephalove blog says yes: "Generally, providing enrichment for captive cephalopods seems worth it."
- " Psychologists are starting to look at how expert dancers learn and remember dance steps and what gives them the advantage of expertise in their style." How do ballerinas make it look so easy? An interesting offering from the students of the Cognition and the Arts class.
- "Either we have stumbled onto a rather amazing discovery in terms of post-mortem ichthyological cognition, or there is something a bit off with regard to our uncorrected statistical approach." The dead salmon returns! (at Byte Size Biology)
- Rift (of the Psycasm blog) laments: "It's sad legitimate scientists need to spend time and money disproving such hokum." Sad, indeed. Telepathy, telekinesis, clairvoyance; The Science of Mind-Reading.
