Two new posts on the SciAm Guest Blog – psychology of anti-vaccers and movie reviews from Sundance

Two new exciting posts at the Scientific American Guest Blog this morning!

First, in The perception gap: An explanation for why people maintain irrational fears, his second post on the blog, David Ropeik uses research on risk perception to explain anti-vaccinationist behavior – and a commenter repeatedly demonstrates that the thesis of the post is correct 😉

Then, in her first dispatch from Sundance film festival, old friend Tamara Krinsky reviews two of the movies with a science theme – Science at Sundance, part 1: The Interrupters and Project Nim.

As always: enjoy, comment, share….
