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.
A new paper considers whether scientific research is really 'moving to a world beyond p<0.05, and if we are ready to alter the standing concept of 'statistical significance'.
Researchers say typical neuroimaging studies generally utilize small sample sizes, making them a challenge for other neuroscientists to replicate.
Researchers report the common practice of using patients self report screenings, rather than diagnostic interviews, may be misrepresentational of the actual prevalence of depression.
Researchers propose a new approach to conducting behavioral science research that uses experimental studies and computer models.
