Sci recorded an AWESOME PODCAST on Sunday night at Skeptically Speaking with Desiree Schell! I got to talk about DRUGS. It was super fun! I'm sorry I didn't get to answer all the extra questions (I know there were a lot), so please feel free to leave more questions here, and I'll be glad to answer what I can! The podcast itself goes live on Friday night, Dec 16th, at 9pm. Make sure you take a listen!!!

Today over at The Scicurious Brain, I'm talking about a potential correlation between motivation and dopamine dysfunction in adults with ADHD. It's a good study, and it's a nice correlation, but I think there are some unanswered questions. Head over to Scientific American and check it out.
Society for Neuroscience meeting. Kayt and I hung out and I think she’s fantastic fun. Also, she gave me a tshirt.)
My ears perked up when I first heard that there was a book coming out called “Dirty Minds”. I mean, it’s about neurobiology. And it’s about SEX. And the author had an ORGASM in an fMRI. For SCIENCE. Totally up my alley, this stuff.
Ok, apparently the real list wasn't supposed to be announced until January, but oops! People get excited and can't contain themselves. 🙂
The winners are slowly chatting it up on Twitter, and I'm happy to announce that a guest post on this very blog was selected! Check out Allie's post on the taint (yeah, THAT taint): "Friday Weird Science GUEST POST: The distance between your testicles and your anus, 'taint unimportant". Congratulations Allie!
Scicurious is at Scientific American today, talking about a new paper in nematodes, where dopamine makes you crawl, and serotonin makes you swim. Sadly, I couldn't embed the awesome videos, but you should definitely check it out and hit all the links!!
A small rumble on Monday, but that rumble was from Reuters, and pretty soon it was EVERYWHERE. The BBC, even YAHOO had something. The WI FI is coming for your SPERM! No one's sperm is SAFE! WHATEVER SHALL WE DO!?!?!
I'll tell you what we shall do. We shall look at this paper, and we shall READ it. And we will point the bright light of SCIENCE at it.
Alright paper. WHERE WERE YOU ON THE NIGHT OF...oops. Wrong tactic. Sorry.
