  • Belated congratulations to Joachim Krueger for his 500th essay on his Psychology Today Online blog ‘One among many’ which has accumulated more than 1.9 M views overall.  500. What if there were no what if questions? (3/6/2021) is a riff on persuasion. Joachim has also republished two collections of his essays available here and here.
  • Congratulations to Andrea Megela Simmons on the selection of her paper as the cover article of the November issue of JASA-EL! This paper presents results of field experiments demonstrating that male bullfrogs do not use acoustic cues perceived as timbre or roughness by humans for mediating male-male vocal interactions (which function to regulate aggressive activity).  These new behavioral data are consistent with her neurophysiological results demonstrating that the frog's auditory system is specialized to detect periodicity cues in sounds (i.e., pitch as perceived by humans).  Congratulations, Andrea!
