Behavioral Scientist Recognized with Two Journalism Awards

Two articles from Behavioral Scientist’s Brain Meets World were recognized with journalism awards from the American Society of Journalists and Authors.

“Behavioral Science in the Backcountry”—about the quest to understand the “human factors” in avalanche deaths—by Greg Rosalsky earned the top award in the Sports category.

“Places Unexpected”—by Evan Nesterak about two road-tripping neuroscientists, who traded the lab for a year on the road—earned an honorable mention in the Travel category. 

ASJA’s annual awards “highlight stellar nonfiction” and “honor writers whose articles, produced on a freelance basis, have demonstrated excellence in writing, research, and clarity of presentation.”
