Psych Your Mind is a blog written by a team of graduate students from the UC Berkeley Psychology Department. Their blog presents cutting-edge psychology research that helps us better understand why people think, feel, and behave the way they do. Each Wednesday, the BSR Blog cross-lists a recent post from Psych Your Mind in a series we are calling Psych Wednesdays. You can check out their author bios here.
