Encephalon #64 & #65

I've been a bit tardy on keeping up with Encephalon, so I'm posting about two editions at once...

The 64th edition of Encephalon was hosted by The Neurocritic. Highlights: Dr. Spurt of Effortless Incitement on procrastination, Neurophilosophy on dinosuar brains and behavior, and Brainslab on enhanced neurogenesis in mice due to enriched environments.

The 65th (Pareidolia!) edition of Encephalon is out at The Podblack Cat. Posts to check out: The Neurocritic on men perceiving women as tools, Sharp Brains on whether cognitive training works (beware possible bias: Sharp Brains is a for-profit company in the 'brain fitness' market), and Genes to Brains to Mental Health on the epigenetic effects of child abuse (in people who committed suicide).

I'm hosting the 66th edition of the carnival on March 16th, so please send your submissions to me before 12pm GMT on March 15th, to encephalon{dot}host{at}gmail{dot}com.
