New blogs & my shared feeds

A few new additions to my feed reader:

  • Natural Rationality – on “philosophical and scientific approaches of rationality: neuroeconomics, biology and cognition.” By Benoit Hardy-Vallee, a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto.

  1. yay, thank you for adding my blog 🙂 now i actually have to try and write interesting posts, am rather new to the whole blogging business. by the way, i’m just finishing the MSc you’re going to start in autumn. how come you’ve had a rather long break between BSc and starting this one?

  2. After graduating, I started a Ph.D. in developmental neurobiology at King’s, but left 2 years later without finishing it.
    Since then, I’ve trained and worked as a science teacher. I recently decided that brain research is what I really want to do, so I’m going to do the M.Sc. to ease my way back in.
    How did you find the course? And what are you planning to do now?

  3. judging by your posts easing your way back in should be a piece of cake. so are you fond of developmental neurobiology then? or not anymore..?
    the course was pretty good, well organised and good lecturers. as with any course, there were some topics that didn’t interest me much but here you get the chance to choose what to focus on and what to omit. the group was good, too. very multicultural.
    now i’m desperately looking for a job as a research assistant or the like, want to work for a year or so and then move on to a Phd.. so far the plan.
