Somatosphere is a new blog focusing on medical anthropology. Eugene Raikhel, a post-doc at McGill, is the primary blogger but there is also a group of contributing anthropologists.
I met Eugene last December at the big annual anthro conference, then again when I was at McGill in July for the critical neuroscience conference. I’ve been waiting to introduce his blog since then, mostly letting him build up an impressive collection of material.
Just yesterday he posted links to some great podcasts with neuroscientists (including Michael Rutter, whom I’ve always wanted to hear) over at the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine.
His recent Web Gleanings includes a nice round up of posts and on-line articles ranging over topics like expertise, the limitations of biological psychiatry, antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and the history of treating fatigue.
