With a name like “Neuro-con,” how could I not pay attention? He or she (I don’t really know which at this point) is a new blogger who has chosen to remain anonymous for this reason.
Neuro-con is a conservative with a PhD. in psychology, working in the field of neuroscience research. I don’t know whether Neuro-con is also a neocon–much less a neo-neocon–but I welcome Neuro’s expertise in the field of research, as well as his/her stylish writing. (Neuro, please, are you a man or are you a woman, so I can quit this tedious he/she business already?)
See Neuro’s take on that NY Times article about politics being at least partly genetic. I wrote about the topic briefly here, but Neuro has read both the Times article and the original research on which it was based, and therefore has some very interesting observations to add. Neuro also seems to be starting up what looks to be a series of posts on the topic of the politics of genetics.
Welcome, Neuro, to that small but stalwart group: the psycho-bloggers.
