Insights for Neuroscience and Brain Blogs

  • Blogs are rarely sources of impartial information. The blogger often has an opinion on the topic that's covered in the blog, so be aware of bias.
  • Credibility can be another question. It’s worthwhile to always check out the author(s) of a blog to determine credibility and gain perspective. All research has some bias, and even among researchers, physicians and professors, there is a range of authority and perspectives that may affect their opinions on certain topics.
