Not sure what’s up today, but there’s just so much stuff to post.
- The results of new sleep studies show that Asians get the least sleep and feel the most sleepy during the day. I am absolutely part of that crowd as I get a food coma everyday after lunch almost without fail. Previous sleep studies were mentioned here before.
- Chinese style meditation can lead to positive brain changes.
- Darwintunes has crowdsourced music. You can see various snapshot iterations between the starting tune and the most recent ones.
- The Economist profiles the evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa. He is a prominent IQ researcher and has made waves for some of his statements regarding IQ. His take on IQ is that it causes people with an above average amount to be good at things that are evolutionarily novel like living in cities, but no better or worse at things like human interaction and procreation.
