I often get emails asking why we don’t do Spike Activity posts any more. The simple answer is they take time and I now have a somewhat more unpredictable job where I am frequently ‘on the road’.
So until I return to a more predictable pace of life, I’m afraid they’re going to be taking a break, although a well earned one I hope.
However, if you’re a Twitter user, both me and Tom Stafford post mind and brain news as it strikes us at our respective accounts at @tomstafford and @vaughanbell

I don’t have a Twitter account. Do you have a Gmail address so that I can follow your Twitter posts on Google Reader or Buzz that way?
My dopamine system called, threatened suicide.
Your day in, day out posting on Mindhacks has been a gift to the world! Thank you. No matter where I am in life (or where I’m living) I know I can check your site for interesting stories (and more interesting/funny perspectives about those stories).
As far as I’m concerned, you’ve more than earned a break. Thank you!
BTW, for the record, I’m share your interests especially in the following:
-social construction of mental “disorders” and categories
-the mystery of the placebo effect
-brain/computer interfaces (e.g. the emotiv controller)
-history of psychiatry
Just wanted to say a huge thanks for doing spike activity while it lasted, it must have taken a huge ammount of effort! Much appreciated!
Your blog is wonderful. It helps me look smart at work (communications at a private elementary school) plus it is full of sex drugs and rock and roll. I never give feedback to blogs. Enjoy your break.
