Researchers set forth a new summary of the forms gender bias can take and propose a new checklist to remedy the problems they discovered.
Cedars-Sinai has been awarded $11.99 million by California's stem cell agency to launch a clinical trial testing a potential gene and stem cell therapy for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
A review of Alzheimer's research papers finds news media is more likely to report on breakthroughs if the study's authors omit a reference to mice in their title. Papers that acknowledge mice in their title receive less media coverage. Omitting mice from a paper's title generates twice the number of tweets than ones that mention the animals.
Scientists are calling for greater support for neuroscience research in Africa. With the world's largest genetic diversity, researchers say Africa is vital to help progress neuroscience and brain disease research.
Disregarding lab animals' circadian rhythms can hamper reproducibility, validity, and reliability of research, researchers say.
Researchers have uncovered another problem with a number of recent scientific research papers; citing data that is unable to be replicated. The study reveals non-replicable data is cited 153 times more because the findings they lay out are deemed more interesting.
A person's natural level of anxiety may have a significant impact on results for lab-based studies of emotion and anxiety.
Weill Neurohub announces a long-term research partnership with Genentech and Roche Holding AG to advance the development of new therapeutics for debilitating brain and central nervous system diseases.
Incorporating sex (the biological attributes distinguishing males, females, or intersex individuals) and gender (psychological, social, and cultural factors which affect how a human identifies in society) could help improve scientific research, reduce bias and create new opportunities for innovation.
Open sharing of scientific data and standard methods will allow researchers to collaborate on projects and accelerate understanding of neurodegenerative diseases.
A new report examines reproducibility and replicability in science. The report recommends ways in which researchers can improve transparency.
