Best of Mindwise 2015

Mindwise is celebrating its second birthday this month and we're picking the winner of the best post from 2015!

A lot has changed since last March. Our Soundcloud page now hosts many new interviews with some of the newest staff members in the Department (and did you know you can subscribe to our podcasts on iTunes?). The Mindwise Instagram account highlights the many faces of the students and staff in the Psychology Department. And, of course, we’ve redesigned our webpage to bring all of these elements together!

Choose the best post, enter to win a book!

We have selected our favourite posts from 2015 and now ask you, the readers, to decide which one wins the Award for Best Mindwise Post for 2015! Of course, we wouldn’t leave you without some prizes too: Three lucky voters will win a book!

So, pick your favourite article from our selection below and leave your email address if you want to win some Mindwise goodies! Voting closes on March 31st (midnight NL time). We will announce the winning post during the 2016 Heymans Symposium.
