The New York Times has a record of publishing some cutting edge mind and brain journalism, most of which was collected on their ‘Mental Health and Behavior’ page. However, the page seems to have ground to a halt, removing one of the best psychology resources from the net.
Actually, they’ve not stopped publishing high-quality psychology articles, as the recent piece on the genetics of moral behaviour and social altruism demonstrates.
But their single best advert for their articles, a one-stop shop that gathered them all in one place, seems to have died a death.
It’s such as shame for a publication that has the rare and enviable record of publishing engaging pieces by writers who actually understand the science.
