I've just made a small change to The Psychologist website which I think has a big impact. Obituaries, formerly collected under 'Looks back', are now at /obituaries. It was a shock to see how many incredible psychologists we have lost in recent years. But it also means that our 'Looking back' articles, more than 100 of them (now open access), stand alone at /lookback.

I'm very proud of this resource - many fascinating pieces dealing with the history of psychology or the psychology of history. It's important to look back in order to look forward, and there are colourful tales still to be told. If you're interested in contributing, get in touch.

This month's historical piece is from Andrew Wickens, with five depictions of the brain. Elsewhere, there's our usual mix of the professional and personal. We're still finding our feet after being 'reborn' in January, and I thank you again for your support along the way.
