    Lead Us Not Into Error: Practical Advice From Statistical Reviewers Statistical analyses can reveal important patterns in neuroscience data but can also lead us into error. Watch this webinar and gain practical advice from experienced statistical reviewers on issues like covariate selection, sample-size planning, and p-value interpretation. How to Submit an Impactful Abstract for Neuroscience 2022 Webinar The abstract submission period may be over, but watch this webinar to learn more about the abstract review process and how you can submit the most impactful abstract for next year’s annual meeting. Then, read the extended Q&A on the Neuronline Community forum. Advice to Underrepresented Trainees on Building Better Mentor/Mentee Relationships Andrea Morgan explains why underrepresented trainees may face unique barriers when forming mentor-mentee relationships, and steps that they can take to build better relationships with their mentors in this Neuronline article. The Benefits of Creating Art While Working in Science Peter Dallos is the John Evans Professor of Neuroscience Emeritus in the department of neurobiology at Northwestern University, but he is also an artist. In this article, he suggests there are remarkable similarities between the artistic and scientific methods.

    June's Neuronline Recap

    Extended Q&A: Exercise in Brain Health and Disease This resource has been adapted from the webinar, Exercise in Brain Health and Disease, which took place on April 28, 2022. In the full recording on Neuronline, Henriette van Praag, Áine Kelly, David Jiménez-Pavón, and Swathi Gujral discussed different mechanisms by which exercise positively influences brain health and function across the lifespan, from modulation of inflammation to regulation of adult neurogenesis. URL: https://community.sfn.org/index.php?/topic/5207-extended-qa-exercise-in-brain-health-and-disease/ How to Advocate for Mental Health Research In this panel, NMH Director Joshua Gordon, Maria Oquendo, Pat Kobor, Patricia Conrod, and Lori McMahon address current foundational research on mental health issues, advocacy efforts to increase public awareness and funding, and how the COVID-19 pandemic heightened the importance of addressing mental health across all ages. URL: https://neuronline.sfn.org/advocacy/how-to-advocate-for-mental-health-research How Models Clarify Our Understanding of the Brain Stephen Grossberg illustrates the importance of neural models by taking a close look at the stability-plasticity dilemma, and how neural models can help answer questions such as, how do we learn things quickly but remember them for a long time, or why does a fast-learning rate not force a fast-forgetting rate? URL: https://neuronline.sfn.org/scientific-research/how-models-clarify-our-understanding-of-the-brain How Science Communication Can Improve Your Career Effective science communication refers to the ability to discuss science in terms that your audience will understand. Read how scientists can communicate inwardly to colleagues, or outwardly with important stakeholders such as the public, government, industry, educators, or even scientists outside of one’s field.
