The Naive Observer reviews new and exciting research about connections in the brain for anyone who is interested. To cater to anyone, I have divided the page into two main sections: Thoughts and Analysis.
Thoughts gives a general summary of the papers I review and places their findings in the greater neuroscientific and real-world contexts. You’ll also find random thoughts here; this is the cutting room floor – neither the inspired, the crack-brained nor the ornery are left out.
Analysis goes into more depth, breaking the papers down and dissecting out the good, bad and unforgivable. The goal here is objectivity, but we all know that’s impossible, so please air your grievances with my own.
I also have a Methods section that is essentially a catalogue of new, innovative or complex techniques used in the papers I review.
