The bloggers behind the blogs

Blogging has emerged as a powerful medium in recent years and nowhere is this more evident than in psychology and neuroscience. But who are the people behind these increasingly influential blogs? What are their motives and what advice do they have for aspiring bloggers? The Research Digest [AKA Christian Jarrett] caught up with a handful of the world's leading psych bloggers to find out:

Jacy Young of Advances in the History of Psychology.
Jesse Bering of Bering in Mind.
Anthony Risser of BrainBlog.
David DiSalvo of Brainspin & Neuronarrative.
Petra Boynton of Dr Petra.
Vaughan Bell of Mind Hacks.
Mo Costandi of Neurophilosphy.
David Dobbs of Neuron Culture.
Neuroskeptic of Neuroskeptic.
Hesitant Iconoclast of Neurowhoa!
Scarlett de Courcier of Ramblings of an Academic Petrolhead, Paracademia and 28 others.
Dave Munger of Research Blogging and Cognitive Daily.
Wray Herbert of We're Only Human & Full Frontal Psychology.
