New neuroscience blogs

Some new neuroscience blogs that I’ve found while browsing, or that have found me via incoming links:

  • On the Brain – by Dr. Michael Merzenich, Francis Sooy Professor in the Keck Center for Integrative Neuroscience at the University of California, San Francisco.
  • Neurozone – “Musings on neuroscience, psychology, cognitive science, and philosophy of mind,” by “a semiconscious entity inhabiting San Francisco.”
  • The Neurospective – The author is in the middle of their final exams, so there’s very little content at the moment.
  • Brain Maps – “A guide to high resolution brain mapping.”
  • Brain Windows – “a blog devoted to reporting, analyzing and interpreting the latest results in the field of brain imaging technologies, particularly at the levels of systems, circuits, single cells and below,” by Andrew Hines, “who is nearing completion of his Ph.D. in Neurosciences at UCSD. His work focuses on development and use of genetically-encoded optical sensors of neurotransmitters.”

New non-neuroscience blogs:

  • Eye On DNA – a new genetics blog by Hsein-Hsein Lei, who previously wrote Genetics & Health.
  • The Situationist – the Harvard Project on Law and the Mind Sciences blog; contributors include Phillip Zimbardo.
  • Cat Cubed – an eclectic mix of art, neuroscience, psychology and web design.
  • Second Chance to Live – the author writes, from personal experience, about overcoming traumatic brain injury.
  • Neurotransmission – by Jason Thompson, who “considers the ongoing debate concerning the nature of mental disorder, based on the state-of-the-art in psychology, psychiatry and contemporary culture.”

And here are the blogs that I’ve added to my blogroll in recent weeks, just in case you hadn’t noticed.

Science writers:

  • Inky Circus – “Life in the girl nerd world,” as portrayed by science journalists Anna Gosline, Katie Law and Anne Casselman.

  • Cocktail Party Physics – by Jennifer Ouellette, author of The Physics of the Buffyverse.
  • The Intersection – by Chris Mooney, Seed’s Washington correspondent, and author of The Republican War on Science.

  1. Thanks for turning me on to a few great new science blogs I hadn’t seen yet. I’ve also just recently started a blog, called “Orthomolecular Desserts,” focusing on behavioral medicine, neuroscience, and orthomolecular medicine. Hope you find it interesting 🙂
