Disorders of the Nervous System
Karl Herrup and Christophe Bernard philosophically discuss fallacy traps in neuroscience, in an episode of the webinar series SfN Journals: In Conversation. Here is a teaser for the episode available to watch on-demand.
Dr. Paul Baudin, currently completing his medical degree at the Sorbonne Paris Nord university, tells us how his Ph.D. broadened his conceptualization of neurological diseases and treatments, and emphasizes the importance of publishing negative data.
The authors explain how splicing variation (3R vs. 4R) and cytoplasmic tethering (by 14-3-3) blunt the pathogenicity of phosphorylated tau during normal brain development.

This paper presents an elegant study examining neuronal activation in multiple brain regions involved in learning and consolidation of an alternation task.
