I apologize for the sparse posting as of late, but I recently made a cross-country move. Hopefully, now that I am settled in, I can get back to posting more regularly. That being said, here is the latest installment of Around the Web:
- Guardian has a piece on neuroenhancement, smart drugs, and students.
- Scientific American has a wonderful piece by John Horgan about the role the Penatgon/DoD plays in funding neuroscience.
- Adam Kolber has a great post over at the Neuroethics and Law Blog about what he call's "fractional parents." See here for a recent follow-up post.
- Neuroethics at the Core has a nice review of the fascinating research being done by Liane Young and Rebecca Saxe on moral judgments. See here for their most recent paper.
- Science Daily has a nice piece on bionic eyes and another on the neural relationship between empathy and violence.
- New Scientist has a piece on chimp intuitions/judgments about fairness.
- Neuronarrative has three interesting posts: (a) a post about photographs and "false" memory, (b) another about testosterone and the power of belief, and (c) one about what makes us human.
As always, happy reading!
