I’m a journalist who writes most often these days about psychology and brain science.

I’ve been a steady freelancer or staffer for The New York Times,, and Among other things, I’ve written about adopted embryos, why placebos work, happy hour playdates, computerized crossword puzzles and the market for illegal drugs on the Internet.
