Neurophilosophy is a weblog about molecules, mind and everything in between, which has been hosted by the Guardian since August 2011. It has been anthologized four times in the Open Lab books, featured in newspapers such as the New York Times and The Independent, cited in dozens of academic research papers and textbooks, and translated into more than a dozen languages. In 2010, it was listed by the British Psychological Society as one of the most influential neuroscience and psychology blogs. Browse the Neurophilosophy archives here.
