Child-Psych.org is a research-based informational blog about child psychology, parenting, and childhood disorders. We provide reviews of the latest scientific findings on a number of psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders in a style that is accessible to parents, educators, and clinicians. Our mission is to become the most comprehensive online resource of science-supported information on child psychology.
I am a psychiatrist and writer based in London. I have a particular interest in psychological and social approaches to psychiatry, and I am a critic of the excessive bio-medical influence in mental health care.
A blog devoted to empirical science and the study of the mind. Expect to find critical analysis of scientific research, debunking of misinformation and tongue-in-cheek commentary based on cold hard evidence.
Science of Eating Disorders is dedicated to making peer-reviewed eating disorder research more accessible to the public. It is about making sense of the science in a clear and concise way for those who may lack expertise, access, or time required to read scholarly literature. Moreover, because all SEDs articles are written by individuals with a history of eating disorders, Science of Eating Disorders provides a rich and unique insight on the scientific findings in EDs. Articles often include glimpses of the behind-the-scenes reality of living with, managing and recovering from an eating disorder, from an adult perspective.
Research and news related to trauma, disaster, traumatic stress and recovery, with a particular focus on children and adolescents. Occasional posts on the use of social media to develop a trauma research community.

From Wikipedia.Last week I gave an invited presentation in the nice library of the Royal Society of Chemistry, at the What's in a Name? The Unsung Heroes of Open Innovation: Nomenclature and Terminology meeting. I was asked to speak about HTML in this context, something I have worked with as channel for communication of scientific knowledge and data for almost 20 years know. Mostly in the area of small molecules, starting with the Dictionary of Organic Chemistry, which is interesting
Chemistry students at the Radboud University in Nijmegen (then called the Catholic University of Nijmegen) got internet access in spring 1994. BTW, the catholic part only was reflected in the curriculum in that philosophy was an obligatory course. The internet access part meant a few things:xblastHTML and web serversemailOur university also had a campus-wide IT group that experimented with new technologies.
