Our old site, Neuroanthropology.net, has just broken through the 1,000,000 visits mark! We’ve done that in three years. Our very post there came in December 2007.
Even though Greg and I moved over here September 1st, Neuroanthropology.net has continued to generate impressive traffic. Here are some of the posts that got us over the top:
We agree it’s WEIRD, but is it WEIRD enough?
-Greg dissects the excellent study by Henrich et al. that took psychologists to task for basing claims about universal psychology using samples of college students
Inside the Mind of a Pedophile
-Absolutely incredible comments on this post, as readers continue to debate pedophilia, the people who have done it, and the children and families who have suffered from it
Forever at War: Veterans’ Everyday Battles with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
-Veterans suffering from PTSD share what it’s like to have PTSD, and what they want other vets and the broader public to know about PTSD
Life without language
-Author Susan Schaller’s work with a profoundly deaf immigrant who grew up without sign language, and an exploration of what it is like to live without language
The new linguistic relativism: Guy Deutscher in the NYTimes
-Does language shape how you think? A re-examination of language and thought
Edge: Getting at the Neuroanthropology of Morality
-The new scientists of morality are actually doing neuroanthropology, and not evolutionary psychology
The dog-human connection in evolution
-Dogs made us more human
It’s hard to believe that we’ve had 1,000,000 onsite visits in three years, plus all the other people who’ve read the old site through Google reader or other rss feeds. When we started, we never expected to have such success with our Neuroanthropology blog. So thank you!
We hope to do the same here on Neuroanthropology PLoS. Even if Google Analytics is not quite as generous as WordPress stats with onsite visits! Still, check back in three years or so…
