Under the Cortex: Science Rewind: Revisiting Three of Our Favorite Early Stories

As Under the Cortex enters its second year, we decided to comb through the archive and revisit three exciting stories from our early days. 

Our first story explores why groups can look on the “good old days” as a guide for curing the woes of today.

Next we discuss why we’re drawn to villains, monstrous characters from fiction, especially if they remind us of ourselves in some way.

And finally on this look back, we “resurrect” our creepy look at haunted houses and why they’re so fun!
