What’s Jonah Lehrer up to?

On June 19, I showed how Jonah Lehrer’s June 12 New Yorker “Frontal Cortex” blog post was a light rewrite of his Oct. 15 Wall Street Journal essay. Other self-plagiarism examples followed.

Lehrer hasn’t posted to his Frontal Cortex blog since June 12, and his Twitter feed has been silent since June 18.

This afternoon I asked the New Yorker when readers can expect to see Lehrer’s byline again.

“Jonah is currently working on a story for the magazine,” New Yorker spokesperson Alexa Cassanos wrote in an email.
