Dr. Neurosaurus

Professor and paleontologist Maria Eugenia Leone Gold started the blog Dr. Neurosaurus to "take paleontology news and break it down so that kids can easily understand." Blog posts are available in English and Spanish, and readers can sort through posts in a variety of ways: by selecting a language preference, selecting an archive date (which includes posts from February 2016 to present), using the search bar in the top-left corner, or clicking on the Recent Posts tab. These posts cover a variety of topics and seek to make complex scientific discoveries accessible and understandable. For example, a September 2019 post turns a research paper on "The Frontoparietal Fossa and Dorsotemporal Fenestra of Archosaurs and Their Significance for Interpretations of Vascular and Muscular Anatomy in Dinosaurs" into a simple metaphor: Some dinosaurs had holes in their skull for "air conditioning." The site also contains information about another one of Gold's projects, She Found Fossils, "a picture book about the history and present diversity of women in paleontology." Readers interested in more of Gold's work can find the link to her research website on the About Me page.
