We’re now two weeks into the renewed program for the Social Neuroscience Minor, where we emphasise on solid science. This week, students evaluated literature based on the strength of the evidence. The students were very eager to learn practical tools to judge papers using for example effect size measures. I may seem trivial, but for many this was a real eye-opener. Looking much forward to the rest of the programme!
