The Mixing Memory blog has a very nice critique of the Neuron prejudice article and hence the prejudice post I uploaded yesterday. Admitted, I feel guilty at not spotting these humongous errors in the research design! I stand corrected. Thanks MM for doing so in a gentle manner.
Hence, the issues I address at the end of the blog should be taken even more serious: we need studies replicating and doing variations on the Mitchell study. Now with the twist of doing the study right!
Saying all this, I think the follow-up post on the dehumanizing brain is a bit better regarding a critical view. Hmm, did I write that before or after the morning coffee?
