Safe exposure distances for transcranial magnetic stimulation based on computer simulations
Joao Rocha –– In this theoretical paper, the authors have calculated the safe occupational distance for transcranial magnetic stimulation. Of importance, they have indcated the use of a more conservative distance (0.96-1.46 m) instead of 0.7 m found in the literature.
Why is nonword reading so variable in adult skilled readers?
Stephen Macknik –– The reviewers and editors all agree that this is high impact.

Effects of mental health interventions for students in higher education are sustainable over time: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
Stephen Macknik –– Looks really relevant to all fields of science and STEM.
Selective attention on representations in working memory: cognitive and neural mechanisms
Stephen Macknik –– I believe this paper will be widely read
Influence of allelic variations in relation to norepinephrine and mineralocorticoid receptors on psychopathic traits: a pilot study
Jafri Abdullah –– Receptor studies are the blue ocean for future drugs that will cure brain,mind and neurological diseases
Psychometric properties of the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS): measurement invariance between athletes and non-athletes and construct validity
Tsung-Min Hung –– Perceived stress is an imprtant psychological construct in both sport and exercise setting and this study provides a measurement tool for this important construct.
