Extras

Eye-catching studies that didn't make the final cut:

The mere sight of other people's disease symptoms causes your immune system to brace itself.

Mental disorders are brain disorders: You think?

Alcohol misuse and functional impairment in the UK Armed Forces: A population-based study.

Top-down influences on colour-flavour interactions: '...when presented with a brown drink, the majority of British participants (70%) associated that color with a “cola” flavor (and 0% with a “grape” flavor), whereas half of the Taiwanese participants (49%) associated that same color with a “grape” flavor instead (and 0% with a “cola” flavor).'

How the two hemispheres job share during dual-task conditions. [Check out the report on this study over at Not Exactly Rocket Science].

Neighborhood context and the development of aggression in boys and girls.

"You" and "I" need to talk about "us": Linguistic patterns in marital interactions.

Contemplating the future helps us pleasure delay - postponing immediate gratification in favour of a bigger reward later. [Check out the report on this study over at Frontal Cortex].

And finally ... did you know there's a journal of NeuroQuantology - covering neuroscience and quantum physics?

The link for 'Neighborhood context and the development of aggression in boys and girls' does not seem to work - is there any chance of getting references for that article?

Hi Hanna
I just checked the link and it is working now. The reference is Vanfossen, B., Brown, C. H., Kellam, S., Sokoloff, N. and Doering, S. (2010), Neighborhood context and the development of aggression in boys and girls. Journal of Community Psychology, 38: 329–349. doi: 10.1002/jcop.20367
