Hmmm...the Orbitofrontal cortex must be an absolutely fascinating topic!! No...I'm quite serious!! This has been one of my major problems is life: I'm addicted to learning...everything possible. But it's a damned horrible Faustian demon which drives me to stay alive in spite of myself. Now I want to read an extraordinary amount of books on all of these topics listed on this page, later I will be spell-bound by some discussion regarding the semantic paradoxes. There's too much!! This place is driving me nuts---Lacatosias 16:10, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

It certainly is =)--PaulWicks 16:13, 8 March 2006 (UTC)


Unfortunately, I have gotten to know something more than your average person about neuroscience, though, since I've spent most of my life as a patient experiencing in the first-person the sorts of problems that folks like yourself are lucky enough to be able to study at medical schools.--Lacatosias 16:30, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

Optic radiations[edit]

I just noticed that optic radiation and optic radiations are separate articles. Is there any particular reason for this? If not, perhaps someone with more wikipedia mojo than me wants to merge them?

Well, I will propose it any any rate (not an admin). It shouldn't be much of a problem since one is a stub and the other is only slightly more than a stub and they deal with the exact same topic.--Lacatosias 07:19, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

The Psychology Wiki[edit]

The Psychology Wiki is a Wikia project, meaning that it is run by Wikia Inc, associated to Wikimedia foundation who run Wikipedia. You can think of the project as a daughter of the wikipedia site.

We are a large wiki in terms of content but small in terms of contributors. We have various plans to promote ourselves through wikipedia, and through psychology on and off the internet, but some more promotion amongst people already familiar with Wiki editing would be very advantageous.

The Psychology Wiki differs from Wikipedia psychology articles in that:

  • 1) It is intended to contain all of the discipline of psychology, like a giant meta-textbook, rather than an Encyclopedia.
  • 2) It will therefore go into much greater technical detail than one would have in an encyclopedia. It will have full academic referencing.
  • 3) It will have user experiences relating to psychology issues on seperate user pages, protected by admins, allowing POV to be expressed on these pages only. The rest of the wiki is NPOV, but expression of personal experience is nessesary and desireable on our wiki.
  • 4) It will have course content pages from academic and clinical courses with links to internal wiki articles.
  • 5) It will be a place for researchers to discuss latest papers etc...

PS All wiki editors should be aware of the psychological phenomena of Social Loafing. It effects new Wikis with few contributors especially.

Here are some useful pages on our site

We just need more contributors to make it work! Mostly Zen 23:25, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Update for the front page[edit]

Michael Tye is no longer missing. He has a page here. He should be moved under the "philosophers" section. (I looked at the code, but it was a bit too confusing for me.) Postmodern Beatnik 20:03, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Nevermind. I slogged through the code and have fixed it. Postmodern Beatnik 18:50, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
Congratulations!! (;

I love Psychology. It has been my favorite subject since I was about 14 years old. I will be checking in with comments and edits often I hope. Remowill 19:51, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

language and thought[edit]

this a por article, it should be improved-- (talk) 16:21, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

This one? It sure is pretty poor. {{sofixit}}! ;-) I'm wondering if maybe there's a better article on the same topic that this one could be made a redirect to... /skagedal... 19:54, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Fred M. Levin[edit]

Can anyone tell me if Fred M. Levin is significant to the science of mind and psychology? Thanks.

I just noted your question after googling on the web. I am Fred M. Levin, and I would answer your question briefly as follows: Through over 100 publications, including 9 books, three of which deal specifically with integrating psychoanalysis, psychology, and neuroscience (1. Mapping the Mind, Psyche and Brain, and Emotion and the Psychodynamics of the Cerebellum (all Karnac Books, London and NY, the second as a second edition of the original volume). So my sense is that I have been making contributions in this area for some time. I hope you would agree.

Free will and determinism[edit]

Can anyone tell me which scientists believe that all our "decisions" are actually determined by biological and/or social factors? --Uncle Ed (talk) 12:56, 28 March 2009 (UTC)


Shouldnt human brain be added? -- (talk) 01:31, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Case of "*Portal Mind And Brain"[edit]

This edit added "*Portal Mind And Brain". For compliance with normal MOS casing rules it should probably be "*Portal mind and brain" or "*Portal Mind and brain", but I don't understand how that category usage works, so I'm reluctant to change it myself.

how can I get updates regularly from this portal[edit]

Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation[edit]

This has been proposed for deletion. Bearian (talk) 23:24, 18 December 2013 (UTC)


This portal was recently nominated for deletion here Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Portal:Mind and brain, and may be again if it remains inactive. Pings to recent contributors if they want to update it: @Sardanaphalus:, @VisitingPhilosopher:. — xaosflux Talk 14:32, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the ping. I've taken a copy of the page in case it is deleted and someone / some people subsequently want to resurrect it. Sardanaphalus (talk) 21:07, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks @Xaosflux: for paying attention and declaring keep - Perhaps a comment box at the head of the page would assist contributors towards the right direction - there have been quite a few edits recently. e.g., perhaps there is a "model" portal page which shows the correct style? Just a thought. ♥ VisitingPhilosophertalkcontribs 17:06, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Request for attention[edit]

Embodied bilingual language is a barely connected article, almost a WP:Orphan that is in Queue 2 at WP:DYK. It needs some links to it. Thanks. 7&6=thirteen () 13:12, 1 June 2015 (UTC)
