Fear of ghosts in Science

ghost_hand.jpgAn interesting update on Peter Lawrence’s PLoS Biology article that discussed the role of social and biological differences between males and females, and the under-representation of women in science (see previously on Mind Hacks)…

According to an article in The Telegraph, Lawrence’s article was accepted for publication in the journal Science but they bottled it and pulled out at the eleventh hour, presumably fearing the controversy that has surrounded the debate so far.

Link to Telegraph article ‘Scientists are split on the different ways men and women think’.
