An the Emmy, I mean Nobel Goes To...
I have just made a brilliant discovery.
It's so simple yet so significant in the world of cognitive science...and I didn't even need an MRI machine.
There is a functional area of the brain dedicated to the "winning the oscar/grammy/beauty pageant" phenomenon.
Apparently, it also responds to Nobel Prizes. Theodor Haensch really only got 1/4 of the prize, so maybe this is his "I was honored to be nominated and am pretending I'm not pissed that I didn't get the whole prize to myself" face.
