Editor's Selections: Superheroes, Time Perception, and Choices

Here are my Research Blogging Editor's Selections for this week.

  • Are you an inattentive superhero? Bradley Voytek thinks so, and explains why in this fantastic post at Oscillatory Thoughts.
  • Does visual perception for the actions of others alter perception of the passage of time? Mo Costandi at Neurophilosophy describes a recent paper addressing this very question.
  • Can having lots of choices in life make us more selfish and less empathic towards others? At Not Exactly Rocket Science, Ed Yong writes about a series of experiments that suggest the answer is yes. Also, there's bacon.

That's it for this week... Check back next week for more great psychology and neuroscience blogging!
