Scientific Blogs

"Artists look different" posted on Cognitive Daily profiles a research result that suggests that grad students in the visual arts look at pictures differently than grad students in psychology, and presumably than most people. They are seen to search both the figure and ground of the picture. The rest of us focus primarily on the figure and neglect the background. This is another example of the fact that eye witness information is only as good at the witness, and that the trained eye takes in more than the untrained.

This is one of many interesting articles on Cognitive Daily, a blog on cognitive sciences.

This in turn is one of many Science Blogs on this commercial site (apparently making its money by online advertizing).

Check out, also, the Social Science Statistics Blog.
