Democratizing science researchers make neuroscience experiments easier to share reproduce

Over the past few years, scientists have faced a problem: They often cannot reproduce the results of experiments done by themselves or their peers. This “replication crisis” plagues fields from medicine to physics, and likely has many causes. But one is undoubtedly the difficulty of sharing the vast amounts of data collected and analyses performed ...
