    Modulation of GABA and resting state functional connectivity by transcranial direct current stimulation

    Velicia Bachtiar et al.
    Building on previous work (Stagg et al., 2014), it is shown that transcranial direct current stimulation modulates local GABA concentration and functional connectivity in the human motor cortex.

    Point of View: Is cell size a spandrel?

    Ariel Amir
    Analysis of experiments on bacteria suggests that the dependence of cell size on growth rate is not an adaptation but a causal consequence of a regulatory mechanism that controls DNA replication.
  1. Point of View: Overflow in science and its implications for trust

    Sabina Siebert et al.
    Interviews with senior biomedical researchers reveal a perceived decline in trust in the scientific enterprise, in large part because the quantity of new data exceeds the field's ability to process it appropriately.
