Ann Avouris's Blog (31)

Looking for Bloggers

Despite the invention of planes, trains, and automobiles (not to mention grants), no one can attend every scientific conference. Want to live blog an upcoming meeting and post your feedback for your colleagues who couldn't attend? We'd like to see your comments on workshops, symposia, and posters (even your pictures)!

Or, if you’d like to write/cross-post a general neuroscience blog, or simply add commentary on articles published, novel findings etc., we’d be happy to feature your…

Why are you using the NeuroNetwork?

On our eight week anniversary, I'd like to ask our members -- why are you on the Network? What do you hope to get out of the site, and how can we improve your experience? Has the NeuroNetwork helped you to make a connection with someone you did not previously know? Please share your experiences and feedback with us, so that we can improve the site in the future.

What was your inspiration?

As we enter autumn, otherwise known as back-to-school, I'd like to ask our members -- what originally drew you to science? Was there a memorable event, or person, who first made you aware of how the world worked, and sparked your interest in research? What drew you, in particular, to study the brain?

And perhaps most importantly -- how can we inspire future generations to continue their studies in science?

New features, new look

In the coming month we will be revamping The NeuroNetwork, adding some additional features and doing a small redesign. In human years, the network is just two months old -- and what a child! In those short weeks we have seen astonishing growth, and we want to ensure that our site meets the needs of our members.



Please let us know if you have ideas, requests, or critiques. We will be… Continue

Twisting the Truth?

While nominally outside the scope of this site, the hubbub over a recent Time article on exercise and weight loss is, I think, an interesting example of the alleged inaccuracies and misrepresentations often found in science journalism. For those who did not read the original article, you may find it here, from August 9 -- "Why Exercise Won't Make You… Continue
