NeuroThursday is back in full neuroscience swing, with the second in an N-part series on memory. This time, false memories: so very common, and so very humbling.
This week’s NeuroThursday is only partially about neuroscience: it focuses on an article that made the rounds this week, claiming that the Chinese had teleported an object to a satellite. (Spoiler alert: no, they hadn’t.) But I do use a neuroscience story to help me explain the issue!
Time for another NeuroThursday: this one on how memories get so fluid & unreliable!
Have you seen the TED talk on “power posing?” Then you’re going to want to read this week’s NeuroThursday!
Another NeuroThursday lined up for you: this one on marijuana safety! It’s less harmful than many drugs (including alcohol binge drinking), but I wouldn’t call it Mostly Harmless.
This week’s NeuroThursday is a long one, but I had a lot of cool stuff to explain. Neural networks: how they work, and what they’re all about!
For this week’s NeuroThursday, I started writing one on Elon Musk’s NeuraLink, but it only ended up being five tweets‘ worth of material. So I called that my “placebo NeuroThursday,” and followed it up with a full-length one on the placebo effect!
This week’s all new, never-seen-before NeuroThursday: on déjà vu, and the details of human memory that make this phenomenon possible.
NeuroThursday took a nap last week, but it’s returned with dreams of explaining why sleep deprivation is a thing – and why it’s probably your thing.
For this week’s NeuroThursday, I tackle the recent scientific evidence for psychic powers – and why it’s unconvincing despite getting published in a major peer-reviewed scientific journal.
