For those who might be new to my blog, one of my blogospheric roles is Psychology and Neuroscience Editor of ResearchBlogging.org. As part of my job, each week, I choose 3-4 of the best psychology and neuroscience posts from around the science blogosphere to highlight.
Here are my Research Blogging Editor's Selections for this week.
- Your dose of psycholinguistics for the week: Nature, Nurture, and Bayes over at Games With Words.
- What can the Three Stooges teach us about child development and the understanding of fairness? Eric Michael Johnson of the Primate Diaries has an idea: Does Rough-and-Tumble Play Teach Lessons About Fairness? “Why, Soitenly!”
- In 1983, Howard Gardner proposed the theory of multiple intelligences. Almost three decades later, can cognitive neuroscience support it? Dave Hayes of the neurosphere blogs covers the brain-based evidence for multiple intelligences.
- Are there more connections in a cubic millimeter of your brain than there are stars in the Milky Way? Find out - and check out an awesome photo of rat hippocampus - at The Astronomist.
That's it for this week... Check back next week for more great psychology and neuroscience blogging!
