How do children's implicit attitudes form? Interesting new work by @TesCharlesworth, @BenedekKurdi, and @banaji.

Excited to announce that I've started work on a 3rd edition of the ggplot2 book (with help from @djnavarro) — big news for this edition is that Springer has allowed me to share it online: https://t.co/6kgkt5QCyq 📊📒🤓🎉 #rstats
paper out! "most animal behavior is not the result of clever learning algorithms but is encoded in the genome. Specifically, animals are born with highly structured brain connectivity, which must be compressed through a “genomic bottleneck”. https://t.co/9i0Nnpnrs6
