External links modified (February 2018)[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just modified one external link on Neuroscience. Please take a moment to review my edit. If you have any questions, or need the bot to ignore the links, or the page altogether, please visit this simple FaQ for additional information. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, you may follow the instructions on the template below to fix any issues with the URLs.

"Insufficient study sizes" section[edit]

I'm inclined to remove the section with that title, and would like to explain why. Although some of the information there may be valid, its relevance to neuroscience as a whole is very unclear, and the way it is presented is not very conducive to understanding by readers. In short, this material may deserve presentation somewhere in Wikipedia, perhaps even in this article, but presented as it is, it is WP:UNDUE. If the article had a section on techniques and their limitations, it might be appropriate there. (Note: the material was added in June 2015 by an IP editor. It was removed in 2017 by another IP editor, but the removal was reverted by an article-watcher because it was unexplained.) Looie496 (talk) 14:18, 1 July 2018 (UTC)[]

I have a sinking feeling that I might have been that article watcher. Now that you point this out, I'm inclined to agree with you, mainly because it's something that applies equally to all biomedical sciences. No objection from me if it's removed. --Tryptofish (talk) 16:52, 1 July 2018 (UTC)[]
No, it wasn't you. Looie496 (talk) 19:41, 1 July 2018 (UTC)[]
Yay! Anyway, deleting is fine with me. --Tryptofish (talk) 15:49, 2 July 2018 (UTC)[]

Nomination of Portal:Neuroscience for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether Portal:Neuroscience is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The page will be discussed at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Portal:Neuroscience until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the page during the discussion, including to improve the page to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the deletion notice from the top of the page. North America1000 10:36, 12 July 2019 (UTC)[]

brain simulation section.[edit]

Brain Simualtion with the rise of modern supercomputers, as well as the ever-increasing detailed data available on the mouse brain, some of the large-scale neuroscience projects are attempting Brain simulation or the computer simulation of biological neural systems. the eventual goal of these projects is to simulate the whole mouse brain (and eventually the human).[46][47][48]

neuromorphic computers another approach to simulating the brain is neuromorphic computing or hardware chips that work analogously to biological neural circuits. the primary advantage of this in neural simulation is that the computer is engineered from a hardware level to be brainlike physically thus allowing the computation itself (what the computer actually needs to process) to be somewhat simplified.[49] some examples of neuromorphic computing projects are: SpiNNaker and BrainScales (human brain project) and Pohoiki Springs (intel labs) — Preceding unsigned comment added by RJJ4y7 (talkcontribs) 13:36, 31 December 2020 (UTC)[]
