New Psychology Blogs! (well, new to me anyways)

For those interested in psychological science, and perhaps some pop psychology too, you might be interested in knowing that Psychology Today (a popular psychology magazine) is now hosting a myriad of psychology blogs!

I just found out about this recently, from my advisor. There are really a lot of different psych blogs listed in their index, each devoted to a specific topic. It's pretty cool and you should be able to find various blogs that appeal to your interests, whether it be behaviroal economics
, autism, self-help, or even sleep. Plus, the blogs are opened to commenting, so you can always put your own 5 cents in.

What's also cool is that there are some really famous (well, in my eyes!) psychologists who find their blogging home there.

So far my favorites are:

The Attractionologists - by social psychologists Eli Finkel and Paul Eastwick

Cultural Animal - by social psychologist Roy Baumiester

- by social psychologist/neuroscientist John Cacioppo

The Scientific Fundamentalist - by evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa

Twofold - by twin researcher/evolutinary psychologist Nancy Segal

and lastly,

- by social psychologist (and my current mentor) C. Nathan DeWall

But really, there's a plethora more of psych blogs to go through over at Psychology Today, so there's a lot of really good ones that I haven't read yet. So, if you're interested, go check them out!
