As Psychology and Neuroscience Editor for, I feature the best posts about peer-reviewed research in those areas each week. Here are my Research Blogging Editor's Selections for this week.

  • At Inkfish, Elizabeth Preston asks, "Are Women Really Less Funny Than Men?" They might, but only a little bit. And the more interesting question is why that might be the case.
  • Why does marijuana get you high, but hemp doesn't? Dirk Hanson has the answers, and they lie in genetics. He writes, "More than 20 plant genomes have now been sequenced, including corn and rice, but Cannabis sativa marks the first genomic sequencing of a traditional medicinal plant."

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