Sunday Smorgasbord

It's time for your weekly Sunday Smorgasbord, where I trawl the internet for the latest ED-related (and not-so-related) news, research, and other ephemera so you don't have to.

Love all these articles Carrie :) Like you I really respect Walter Kaye's research, so thanks for the video interview with him and Daniel LeGrange (which I 'stole' for my Facebook page..).

I could write an essay about the Observer article about socialisation vs. genetics and male/female ability - the main part being why we need to think 'either' or 'or'. Weighing up the evidence it seems pretty clear to me that both nature and nurture contribute to our abilities - whether male or female.

According to tests that evaluate typically 'male' or 'female' cognitive characteristics I have a 'male' brain geared towards systemising. I was always interesting and better at science + maths at school, and hopeless at English Literature. Apart from that I am otherwise very female!

I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.
