As this post goes live, I’ll be waking up for the first full day of Science Online 2011, for which I expect to do a lot of blog coverage. So I’m just listing a handful of links this week:

  • And the twist is? It’s a much bigger pill. Thalidomide may be making a comeback to treat cancer.
  • Hey! Eyes up here. Ringtailed lemurs follow each other’s gaze, a key behavior in social cognition.
  • Geshundheit. Is it possible to sneeze while you’re asleep? Scicurious wonders.
  • Coming soon: Checkers-wrestling, Risk-fencing. In chess-boxing, the cognitive challenge is all about emotional control.
