If you head over to our iOS/Android app, you can download a free Halloween themed edition from October 2016.
If you'd rather stick on here, there's still plenty to find. From November 2018 there's 'Psychology's last stand: Making a difference in the zombie apocalypse'. We have an exclusive chapter from 'The Psychology of Vampires'. And April saw a piece on 'Electronic Voice Phenomena'.
Going further back, there's this 2011 piece from our then journalist, Dr Christian Jarrett. Why are we drawn to scary stories, and what are the neural correlates of the experience? Or this 2012 piece, marking the 20th anniversary of 'Ghostwatch', a notorious BBC special. Also in our 'Looking back' section, there's this 2013 article on psychologists and psychical research between the wars.
Finally, who could forget the ghoulish video to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'. But was he the greatest artist of all time? Listen to episode three of our Research Digest podcast and the bonus material to hear its editor Dr Christian Jarrett debating that with our editor Dr Jon Sutton.
