What have my students been thinking about this week?

I’ve got my neurobiology students blogging — all I ask is that they write something relevant to understanding how brains work. Let’s see where their minds are at this week, shall we?

    I learned something new! I was aware that rats being tickled make a sound believed to be analogous to human laughter, but I didn’t know that they make the same sound when they anticipate a tickling, when they see tickling-person approaching. That’s… rather adorable.

    randomexcess, sure, though many such are at base cognitive illusions.

    (Sensory data are interpreted in the brain)

  3. Sili says

    Tell them if they really want traffic, write something about sexism.

    It think “Cute cuddly animals” will do just fine.
