What did I tell you?

Didn't I tell you that psychology is a science utterly compromised by publication bias? Psychology research is like sausages. Believe me, you don't want to look behind the scenes and see how it is made! It looks like another neuro-fad and supposed autism cure is nothing much more than a puff of wet mist. Isn't it time that charities and governments pull the plug on massively funding research into autism, a concept that doesn't map onto reality in any clear or clean way? 

Gotta wonder how many null finding studies of oxytocin the ARC are sitting on, or negative effect studies in general.

It is past time.

And Simon, Simon, Simon. What a way you have devolved since your 15 principles.*

[see Cognitive Science and Pretend Play in Autism 1985: University College London].

Is this really a way to seek the "positive affect" your cognitivism postulated it would lack in the very first one?

Hello Adelaide. How are you? I'm not blogging as much as I used to.

Adelaide Dupont said...

Fairly well, thank you, Lili Marlene.

Past six months I have been acting on a loose exercise regime and juggling.

Also I have been more mobily connected.

Have lots of plays and concerts in the next few months.

When you do blog, the quality is awesome.
