I won't go through the entire chronology, but I will tell you this. If you do a Google Blog search today using the term "Voodoo Correlations fMRI", you get 86 hits (and probably one more after I publish this post). At least one of the (now) historical hits is to our own Neuroethics & Law Blog, as Adam alerted us earlier this week that there was mention of these Voodoo correlations in the Wall Street Journal. Today, Scientific American has posted a long interview by science writer Jonah Lehrer with Ed Vul, the lead author on the (already) infamous (but still in press until September) paper on Voodoo Correlations in Social Neuroscience. [It is worth reading the invited reply by Lieberman et al. as well.]
This one has legs, that's for certain.
