I had mentioned a few days ago that I was working on a “secret” blog. Today I can let you know what secret is: a new site called Cognitive Daily. I’m really excited about this site because it combines two of my passions: writing about neat stuff, and my wife, Margaret Munger. Greta and I have combined forces to create this new site focused entirely on cognitive psychology.
Nearly every day, we’ll report there on exciting developments in cognitive psychology research — everything from how we see things in color to how kids learn language. Though we won’t dumb anything down, we’ll write about the research in ways everyone can understand. (And as regular Word Munger visitors might guess, the “Psychology” entries on Word Munger form the first set of articles on Cognitive Daily.)
Greta is associate professor of psychology at Davidson College and is an expert in visual cognition. Her articles on the subject have appeared in top journals such as Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition and Visual Cognition. She is also the author of The History of Psychology: Fundamental Questions, published by Oxford University Press.
I’ve had a great time working with Greta on Cognitive Daily, and I’m thrilled that we’re going to keep working together nearly every day to bring you this new site. So why don’t you head on over there right now? Give it a gander, bookmark it, tell all your friends, blog it, link to it, and comment liberally!
I’ll see you there.
