Scientific American Guest Blog– If you like thinking about the human brain, you’ll like this. It’s an introduction to how our bodies (and not just our brains) affect the way we think.

Be sure to check out the list of example studies at the end. Super entertaining. Such as:

“Squeezing a soft ball influenced subjects to perceive gender neutral faces as female while squeezing a hard ball influenced subjects to perceive gender neutral faces as male.”

“Those who held heavier clipboards judged currencies to be more valuable and their opinions and leaders to be more important.”
