We are excited to announce the launch of the first Frontiers for Young Minds! 

Frontiers for Young Minds is science edited for kids, by kids. Learn more and spread the word! http://bit.ly/I8Zevo

This has the double benefit of bringing kids into the world of science and offering scientists a platform for reaching out to the broadest of all audiences. #openaccess #neuroscience

How often do you remember your dreams?

Little is known about what causes people to remember dreams, but a new study has linked a propensity to remember dreams to a stronger neurological reaction to hearing the sound of your first name - both when you're awake and asleep.

Open Access is open access.

I'm happy to announce that my book on OA (Open Access, MIT Press, 2012) is now OA. The book came out in mid-June last year, and the OA editions came out one year later, right on schedule. My thanks to MIT Press.

The paperback edition is still available as well.

I'm working on my own OA edition of the book, which will incorporate my updates and supplements. Meantime, all the updates and supplements are themselves OA. When my edition is ready, I'll blog it here and link to it from the update page itself.

How can healthy people who hear voices help schizophrenics? 

In a new study published in Frontiers in Neuroscience, researchers at the University of Bergen found that those with schizophrenia have a reduced ability to regulate the primary auditory cortex using cognitive control compared to those who hear voices but are otherwise healthy.

You may have more in common with a pigeon than you realise, according to new research. 

Murray Shanahan and colleagues present the first large-scale wiring diagram for the brain of a pigeon. It shows the way the connections are organised in its brain is remarkably similar to mammals, including cats, monkeys, and humans.

By trawling through data from 35 million users of online ‘brain-training’ tools, researchers have conducted a survey of what they say is the world’s largest data set of human cognitive performance. And that's just the tip of the iceberg, they claim...

Are kids who take music lessons different from other kids?

A Frontiers in Psychology study reveals that two key personality traits – openness-to-experience and conscientiousness - predict better than IQ who will take music lessons and continue for longer periods.

The study also shows that when personality traits and demographic factors like parents’ education are considered, the link between cognitive ability and music training disappears.
