Here are a number of new neuroscience blogs that I’ve come across recently:
Neuropathology Blog – by Brian E. Moore, an assistant professor in the Department of Pathology at Southern Illinois University’s School of Medicine. This is a welcome addition to the blogosphere, as neuropathology is a dying art (if you’ll excuse the pun).
Neuroanthropology Blog – a group blog by students and staff in the anthropology departments of Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia and the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, USA, which “encourage[s] exchanges among anthropology, philosophy, social theory and the brain sciences.
Neuroscientifically Challenged – by Marc Dingham, a graduate student in University of Hartford’s neuroscience program, who is “making advances in neuroscience understandable to the beginning neuroscientist”.
Cognitive Neuroscience Conference Nijmegen Blog – the conference takes place in May, at Radboud University in the Netherlands; the blog is “an extension of the conference; a platform where neuroscientists can comment on and discuss the several topics in the field of neuroscience, thereby creating a network where neuroscientists are able to communicate in a fast and easy way.
History and Theory of Psychology Student Network – by “a network of students in North America [who are] committed to increasing and promoting scholarly activity pertaining to the history and theory of psychology.”
And finally, check out Not Exactly Rocket Science, the newest member of the ScienceBlogs network. This is a general science blog with a focus on biology, but author Ed Yong, who won last year’s Daily Telegraph/ Bayer Science Writer Awards, has written two neuroscience posts recently: What happens in the brain of an improvising jazz musician? (which is more detailed than my brief mention of the study) and Communicating chimps and talking humans show activity in the same part of the brain (Broca’s area).
