Crisis of Reproducibility

This workshop covers the wide-ranging issues that contribute to irreproducibility. It focuses on the bias in dissemination of experimental data from the point of view of journals, funding agencies, and the general media.

Neurolaw: A New Frontier – Corpus Curiosum (Series II)
What would a future look like in which neuroscience is incorporated into our legal system? As our knowledge of the human brain grows, so do the ways we can apply neuroscience to different facets of research and society. Neurolaw aims to use our understanding of the brain to create more equitable policies and to advance justice. Rapid technological and scientific achievements pave the way for this growing interdisciplinary field. This talk by Mikayla Dilbeck will introduce the ways neurolaw has started to influence policy, neuroethics, and possibilities for the future.
The Corpus Curiosum series was produced with the support of FENS-CHET.

Neurosexism and the Brain – Corpus Curiosum (Series II)
The ‘Hunt the Sex Difference’ agenda has informed brain research brain for decades, if not centuries. This talk by Dr Gina Rippon aims to demonstrate how a fixed belief in differences between ‘male’ and ‘female’ brains can narrow and even distort the research process. This can include the questions that are asked, the methodology selected and the analytical pipeline. It can also powerfully inform the interpretation of results and the ‘spin’ used in the public communication of such research.
The Corpus Curiosum series was produced with the support of FENS-CHET.

New Neurons in the adult Brain – Corpus Curiosum (Series II)
The adult brain is capable of undergoing neuronal plasticity at different levels ranging from molecular changes to circuit modifications. Until the early 90s, the general rule was that the mammals’ central nervous system lacked the ability to generate new neurons upon birth. It is now clear that the hippocampus, the structure in the brain involved in learning and memory, produces dentate granule cells throughout the lifespan. Adult neurogenesis can be shaped by physical exercise, experience, aging and disease. A talk by Dr Mariela Trinchero.

What makes a Scientist? – Corpus Curiosum (Series II)
Science is a part of our culture, and yet in many ways it stands apart. Scientists make knowledge and strive for that knowledge to be more trustworthy, more credible and, as a consequence, more important than other knowledge. What about science and scientists enables them to do this and why is scientific knowledge dismissed from cultural, political and social debates nonetheless? In this talk, Dr Bart Penders will visit the origins of scientific credibility and its social history, and will trace it into its present form of discussions about rigour and research integrity.
