The Special Issue Spotter

We trawl the web so you don't have to:

Women and Criminality (International Journal of Law and Psychiatry).

Cognitive Neuroscience of Drawing (Cortex). From the editorial: "From at least 30,000 years ago, humans pictured animals, such as rhinoceroses, horses, and lions, on the walls of the caves in which they lived. In spite of controversies over the level of cognitive evolution underlying such cave paintings, drawing is a distinguishing skill of human beings. ...[D]espite the ever-changing conventions of artistic representation, artists and painters may provide deep insights into principles governing brain processes, such as visual processing. Yet, drawing has received little attention in the neurosciences, possibly because so many processes are involved. ... To rekindle interest in investigating the cognitive and neuroscientific aspects of drawing, we proposed to Cortex to set up a special issue covering the different theoretical and methodological perspectives, hence this issue on Cognitive Neurosciences of Drawing."

Couple Relationships: a Missing Link Between Adult Attachment and Children's Outcomes (Attachment and Human Development).

State of the Art Research into Cognitive Load Theory (Computers in Human Behaviour).
