Radically Rethinking Scientific Publication: The “Octopus” Model
Dr. Alexandra Freeman believes that the major problems associated with research culture in science can be traced back to one source: the current scientific publishing model. In this interview with Technology Networks, she explains why a novel approach, called Octopus, is a logical solution to these issues.
Mental Fatigue May Involve a Potentially Toxic Chemical Buildup in the Brain
A workday doesn’t have to involve tiring manual labor to leave you feeling exhausted. A new study claims to have pinned down a functional reason why we feel fatigued after a day of mental effort.
How the Brain Performs Pattern Recognition Without Us Noticing
Human brains learn patterns over time and we don’t even realize it. New insight into how this works could improve learning and other cognitive processes.
Could the Brain's Cleaning Crew Mop Up Alzheimer's?
The microglia – cells in the brain responsible for clearing waste and toxins – can change state in Alzheimer's disease and contribute to neuroinflammation, but researchers have found a way of reprogramming these cells.
A Popular Theory About Depression Wasn’t "Debunked" by a New Review
A new paper that reviews the evidence around the serotonin “chemical imbalance” theory of depression has caused an online storm, with figures from across psychiatry commenting on the study’s merits and limitations. In this article, we take a look at what the paper has changed about our understanding of depression.
What Does the Endocannabinoid System Have To Do With Autism Spectrum Disorder?
To learn more about the link between endocannabinoids and ASD and how innovative models are helping to study the ECS and its effects on the developing brain, Technology Networks spoke to Drs. Karen Litwa and Ken Soderstrom from East Carolina University.
