Encephalon #71 is up

encephalon #58

This is the blogosphere’s neuroscience blog carnival that focuses specifically upon the brain, neuroscience, perception and behavior. Go read this grand round on Neuroanthropology.

My favorites from this edition of Encephalon are:
Dave Munger, Cognitive Daily: Musicians Have Better Memory – Not Just for Music, but Words and Pictures Too (Tweeted it @DrShock)

SharpBrains released a new book, you can read about it and the content on:
The SharpBrains Guide to Brain Fitness: 18 Interviews with Scientists, Practical Advice, and Product Reviews, To Keep Your Brain Sharp

My mind on books with the video of a interview with George Vaillant and “What makes us happy?”, the Harvard Study of Adult Development @ The Atlantic. Used it on my blog as well.
