Weekly Roundup 11-4-12

School: A former school bully reflects on her guilt and shame over what she did as a schoolgirl, especially to one girl in particular. In her words: “If I inflicted half as much physical assault in my adulthood as I did to [Gina] as a teen, I would be locked up for a very long time.”

Psychology: Parents worry about how natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy might affect children, but in general children are resilient. Where adults see damage and disruption, children will remember adventure and making the best of things.

Scholarship: New research shows that when people with math anxiety are presented with a math problem, their brains show activity in the same regions associated with physical pain.
