Engineering the Next Revolution in Neuroscience

The New Science of Experiment Planning

Alcino J. Silva, Anthony Landreth, and John Bickle

  • Argues that it is time to develop a science of experiment planning with the goal of studying and optimizing the strategies used by scientists to make research choices
  • Describes a fundamentally different approach to experiment planning in neuroscience that addresses the growing size, complexity, and integration of the literature in this field
  • Outlines a strategy to derive maps of research findings that can be used to determine what is known, what is uncertain and how to best contribute to the research record
  • Proposes the controversial idea that important experiments in neuroscience can be identified and planned with the help of research maps
