Who am I?Edit

Famousdog is an experimental psychologist and neuroscientist who now works as a scholarly publishing analyst. He has academic interests in sensory psychology, especially visual perception, and he also works in fields as diverse as human factors and ergonomics, bibliometrics and the psychology of religion.

Stuff I've done on WikipediaEdit

  • I am proud to have almost single-handedly rid Wikipedia of (at last count) twenty-two badly-written, repetitive and poorly-sourced articles on Neuro-linguistic programming, which is frankly a load of old tosh.
  • I have worked long and hard for a bit of balance in articles on the psychology of religious belief, occasionally referred to as neurotheology by crackpot proponents of stupid "brain stimulation" twaddle like the God helmet.
  • The article on British Conservative MP Philip Davies is largely my work. I am one of his former constituents. People complain that the WP article on him is overly-negative, but I disagree, vehemently.
  • Removed some nonsense articles on fringe-like areas of psychology.
