RSS for Psychologists: PsychAntenna Developments

Over at PsychAntenna I have provided a brief update on some work I (and the cre8d-design) team have been putting in on a database of psychology, mental-health and neuroscience RSS feeds. RSS is one of my passions and I have a strong desire to see more psychologists using RSS as a way of keeping up-to-date with developments in the field. Never one to sit still :) I am pushing to have the largest publicly available collection of psychology-related RSS feeds ready before the end of the year!

Sixth Issue of In-Mind Social Psychology Magazine Launches

Fresh from my email inbox to you!

Dear In-Mind Fans,

We are happy to present to you the 6th issue of our magazine. For the current issue, we again have four excellent articles from recognized scholars from around the world. It seems that as we passed Valentine’s Day since our last issue, our authors were very much motivated by empathic feelings and love.

Do you ever donate money to famine victims in another country? People whom you have never heard about, but you felt so sorry for the hungry child on TV? Why do people do that? In our first article, Dr. Dan Batson and Dr. Nadia Ahmad dive into a question that philosophers have occupied themselves with for centuries: does altruism, or the ultimate goal to increase someone else’s welfare, really exist (http://www.in-mind.org/issue-6/altruism-myth-or-reality.html)?

Another lasting experience that we all encounter is that guy or girl on the street which leaves this lasting impression on us: it was love at first sight (http://www.in-mind.org/issue-6/love-at-first-sight.html). Find out what psychologists say about this phenomenon in Dr. Stephen Bertman’s article, who picks up where Katarzyna Kubacka  left of with her article on positive illusions in relationships (http://www.in-mind.org/issue-2/positive-illusions-brad-pitt-or-danny-devito-2.html). Then again, while we find out what love at first sight is, it is also important to actually understand what this phenomenon of love entails. Dr. Alex Gunz writes in his second article for In-Mind on the anatomy of love (http://www.in-mind.org/issue-6/the-anatomy-of-love.html).

Finally, Dr. Martijn van Zomeren authored an article entirely unrelated to the former topics. Everyone knows that what is your opinion, your moral conviction, comes from who you are – it is your own, individual “thing�, right? Think again. Your moral conviction might actually stem from which group you belong to. Being a Muslim, a right-wing extremist, a football supporter or just merely a teacher in a school might actually influence your opinion highly, not just who YOU are. Find out about the intricate workings of group dynamics in “Completementing Individualism with the Social Identity Approach� (http://www.in-mind.org/issue-6/complementing-individualism-with-the-social-identity-approach.html).

We hope you enjoy our new issue as much as we did in editing it. Please do not hesitate to give feedback to the authors via the comment form below the articles, or to ‘Stumble’ or ‘Digg’ it if you like the article.

Medical News Today looks like it has had a facelift!

med-news-today.jpgI have featured Medical News Today previously on PsychSplash. They provide an extensive medical news service with multiple mental health and psychological disorder categories. Browsing recently, I noticed the front page has changed, the navigation has tightened up and a range of new (i think!) sections and tools have been launched including health videos and health professional-specific sub-sites (e.g., psychiatry). The same extensive range of news categories still exist with RSS feeds available for all sections.  A very neat and attractive facelift indeed.

Anatomically Correct Brain Cake

Doing the rounds on a few blogs is a link to this WikiHow article on how to make an anatomically correct brain cake. I struggle to bake a round cake that doesn’t have some kind of serious deformity. I’d be frightened to apply my cake making skills to such a delicate operation!

Counselling Resource gets a facelift

counsellingresource2.jpgCounselling Resource (featured previously) has just had a facelift and is sporting a clean and efficient new interface. Counselling Resource, by Dr Greg Mulhauser has always been an extensive and ever-growing source of information for consumers of psychological knowledge. It is also an excellent starting place for online therapists to obtain resources, tips, supervision around growing their online practice (check out the “training and supervision” and “in practice” sections). I know Greg has been working on the changes for a while now, and even consulted with his trusty “International Advisory Board” of which I am a member on some of the changes before going live. Wishing Greg all the best with the new vibe, and I encourage all readers to check out the new site. It is definitely an improved user experience.
