Changes are afoot around here! Six new blogs were launched today, which when combined with the previously-existing Sci Am psychology and neuroscience bloggers, form the new Scientific American MIND Blog Network.

What does it mean for this blog? Nothing has changed. All the current feeds and links will remain as they are - instead, you'll simply be able to find this blog in a few new places, such as the MIND homepage, the MIND Blogs homepage, the MIND facebook page, and the MIND twitter account.

And, you may notice the little MIND icon popping up near the MIND blogs on various pages throughout the Scientific American website.

If you're new to this blog, I encourage you explore the archives, like me on facebook, follow me on twitter, circle me on Google+. Find out more about me on the about page.

Typically, I post a new article each week on human or animal behavior or cognition. Things have been a bit slow the last few weeks, and will continue to be slow for several more, as I'm spending most of my writing energy on my dissertation. Things should pick up again by mid-May!
