Encephalon # 68 carnival, which covers neuroscience and psychology is up at Ourborous. Chris uses a nice question and answer format for presenting the various submissions.
There are a couple of submissions I would like to point out. Daniel Lende at neuroanthropology takes a critical look at the recent popularity of research examining how poverty affects the brain.
Sandy G at mousetrap discusses an evolutionary theory of how low mood might lead people to become risk averse to avoid further loses. This also suggests that a series of personal failures would lead to risk averse behavior, and hence depressive like symptoms.
Don’t just accept my limited selection, go check out the entire carnival.
The aging and longevity blog carnival, Hourglass, will be coming online today at Psique (updated: here is the link) which is written by Laura Kilarski. I am looking forward to her write up, so check out her blog later today for the 9th edition of the hourglass carnival.
