  1. It's no secret that the "Feast" and "Extras" posts are always a hit with me, but I found the Extras post on the 15th of Feb to be particularly interesting. The link for the EEG of the man meeting his imaginary friends was facinating. I ended up posting a number of the studies and references on my Facebook wall to share with my friends.

    Favourite of 2012 so far was the one on being most creative at your groggiest (
    It did make one of my lecturers laugh when I used it as an excuse for trying to nap.

  5. the post about the children of depressed mothers having an adaptive advantage in a similar environment after birth was particularly interesting given the volume of claims about depressed mothers giving birth to extremely maladaptive children

    My favourite digest post of 2012 so far has been 'Facebook or Twitter: What does your choice of social networking site say about you?'.

    It was relevant, related back to theory and was a thoroughly good read! The topic and blog post content are also particularly manageable for people who are interested in psychology but don't have academic experience with it!

    My favorite post is this one about social referencing and risk taking. The set-up of the experiment is interesting as well.

    Thanks a lot!
