There is much in the field education and psychology that is patentable. As aspects of art and entertainment overlap more and more with education and psychology, one way to patent these aspects is to approach them from the point of view of being educational and psychological inventions. What follows are lists of recent abstracts to articles in education and psychology journals that deal with various aspects of art and entertainment. Such articles are also useful for helping artists and entertainers enhance their works by understanding how their works interact with the human neural system. Most of these abstracts come from the government's ERIC database, a true national resource.
