The Guardian has an excellent in-depth article on scorpion venom as a way of identifying brain tumours during neurosurgery.

There’s an excellent piece on the history of using deception in psychology studies over at Aeon.

The Covnersation has an excellent piece on how so much talk about ‘the brain’ in education is meaningless.

Psychology Should Aim For 100% Reproducibility. Some Grade A trolling from Neuroskeptic.

Robohub has an interesting piece on ‘morphological computation’ and the hidden superpower of soft-bodied robots.
