Mo Costandi writes a blog, neurophilosophy, for the Guardian, which is always worth a read. Recently he wrote a book – 50 Human Brain Ideas You Really Need to Know (here). In his blog he has looked at some of the ideas in the book, the latest is the differences and non-differences between the brains of women and men. (here)

If you are having difficulty separating the good from the bad in the popular media’s coverage of neuroscience, this a a must have book for you. And, of course, it is a good read even if you are not confused. The world needs a guide like this to avoid the worst of bad reporting and silly writing. It sets out the current scientific consensus.
