Engineering the Next Revolution in Neuroscience

The New Science of Experiment Planning

Alcino J. Silva, John Bickle, and Anthony Landreth

  • Proposes the controversial thesis that important experiments in neuroscience can be planned and identified by methodically filling in the different forms of evidence recognized by the framework, and applying the different forms of reasoning to gaps in the experimental record exposed by applying the framework
  • Describes a fundamentally different approach to experiment planning in neuroscience that addresses the growing size, complexity, and integration of the literature in this field
  • 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
