This blog is really interesting and appealing to me. I love psychology since I first started studying it, and now that I'm taking my first steps as a college / university student i like it even more. I must congratulate you for this blog and also for your studies in the area. (Ah! I'm portuguese, I often read about some researches taking place in Spain, they are also really great :))
