There are two new neuroscience carnivals starting this month. The first editions of Brain Blogging and the Carnival of Brain Fitness will be at GNIF Brain Blogger on January 6th, and SharpBrains, respectively.
Shaheen (of Brain Blogger) and Alvaro (of SharpBrains) may not know that Jake and I decided to merge The Synapse with Encephalon due to a decline in the number of submissions to both carnivals. Getting enough entries for two fortnightly neuroscience carnivals was difficult, so I’m not sure if having 3 carnivals is such a good idea. Time will tell.
Neurevolution, is a blog “chronicling the cognitive revolution in neuroscience”. It was started yesterday by Michael W. Cole and Patryck A. Laurent, who are both in the neuroscience Ph.D. program at the University of Pittsburgh.
