Please join me in saying hello to a fellow science blogger, not new to blogging but new to me: Laura Kilarski at psique. Laura is a neuroscientist with a strong interest in aging, and her blog covers a lot of ground. She’s got a funny, irreverent sensibility and is not afraid to address some of the tougher subjects related to her field.

Right now she’s applying to Ph.D. programs, so she’s all stressed and busy — so in addition to wishing her the best of luck, we all need to make sure to frequently visit and comment on her blog so that she is properly reassured and incentivized to continue. (link)
