The obvious and the not so obvious

it.

it.

National Geographic News says an experiment by Princeton psychologist Susan Fiske has shown that men see near-nude women as objects rather than people. Is that supposed to be some kind of obvious joke?

Brain scans revealed that when men are shown pictures of scantily clad women, the region of the brain associated with tool use lights up

What really grabbed my attention was the apparent lack of brain function in the compartment that normally lights up when a person ponders another’s intentions. NGN quotes Fiske as saying “the lack of activation in this social cognition area is really odd, because it hardly ever happens.”
