Brains on purpose: The Mindful Hack welcomes an interesting new neuroscience blog

Over at Brains on Purpose, Stephanie West Allen, who - in collaboration with Jeffrey Schwarts - specializes in neuroscience in relation to conflict resolution, is skeptical of the
pop science craze for neuroscience explanations for, like, everything:
Neuro-talk is popular these days. You can read about neuro-this and neuro-that. Much extrapolation is being done from the findings of neuroscience; often the extrapolation is not warranted or accurate.

I've called it neurobullshipping myself, but I am sure Allen is far too polite for that.
Brains on Purpose has been added to the blogroll at the right. When I'm a few days between posts, go there.

(Note: Dr. Schwartz was lead author of The Mind and the Brain, a pioneering book in non-materialist neuroscience. He is a colleague of my lead author, Mario Beauregard. Our book The Spiritual Brain: A neuroscientist's case for the existence of the soul, will be out in August. It is billed as "Finally, the counter-argument in the case against God.")
