Brief brain-related news


For really brief notes on the latest news about brain-related research, don’t forget to head to BrainMysteries.com!

Bits that caught my eye:

Infant pain, adult repercussions

The making of the male brain (estrogen required)

Eating sweets every day in childhood ‘increases adult aggression’

Reader beware: headlines don’t necessarily mean what they say – take that last one, ‘increases adult aggression’ – what the study shows is that there is a correlation between 10-year-olds who ate confectionary daily and their adult convictions for violence at 34 years old.

There is a newsletter put out by this site, and a discussion forum – at least worth a visit, even if you need to read with a pinch or two of scientific common sense.
