Scientific American--Recent Articles

Scientific American has been rife with articles about psychological topics of late. In addition to the usual in Scientific American Mind, recent articles deal with cognitive enhancers, depression, blushing and more.

Depression's Evolutionary Roots
Why Does Music Make Us Feel?

Girl Brain, Boy Brain
Why We Blush: The Social Purpose of Showing Embarrassment
A New Vision of Teaching Science
Smile: It Could Make You Happier

I am such a fan of these two magazines. They highlight current research as well as give us potential examples of nearly everything we do within our psychology classes. If you are not already a subscriber, I recommend it. Otherwise, keep up with the news with what they post online.
