Timing and Time Perception Journal

I am not sure how I missed this journal being started in 2013.  It looks like an awesome resource for cutting edge research on the brain clock, brain timing, temporal processing, etc.  I will monitor it on a regular basis.  Click here for more information on the journal.

Redesigned and awesome ISIR (International Society for Intelligence Research) web page


It had been a while since I visited the ISIR web page.  I checked today and see that it has been completely redesigned.  It is AWESOME.  For those serious about human intelligence research, ISIR is THE professional organization one needs to join.  I have attended a couple of their conferences and they are top notch.  I hope to attend the 2015 conference in Sept.

AAIDD "Death Penalty and Intellectual Disability" A Guide" is now available at AAIDD website!



The AAIDD ID and death penalty guide is now available at the AAIDD webpage!  Although the title is focused on the death penalty and ID (Atkins cases), having written two of the chapters (Flynn effect; Intellectual functioning), I believe all professionals in the field of psychological, assessment and ID should have this reference book--it presents recommendations for ID practice that go well beyond the official AAIDD classification book (the Green book) and are relevant to ID assessment practices in general.

Description of the guide at the AAIDD webpage.

  • In the 2002 landmark decision Atkins v. Virginia 536 U.S. 304, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that executing a person with intellectual disability is a violation of the Eighth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits “cruel and unusual punishment,” but left states to determine their own criteria for intellectual disability. AAIDD has always advocated against the death penalty for people with intellectual disability and has long provided amicus curiae briefs in Supreme Court cases. Thus, in this comprehensive new book published by AAIDD, notable authors in the field of intellectual disability discuss all aspects of the issues, with a particular focus on foundational considerations, assessment factors and issues, and professional concerns in Atkins assessments.
