The Results of Some Medical Studies May Not be Accurate
A new report is questioning the reliability of neuroscience studies.
A team of British researchers reviewed 48 articles that deal with the study of the nervous system.
They found there was only a 20 percent chance of actually finding the results they were investigating, mostly because the studies were too small.
The report said small sample sizes lead to conclusions that could be false or misleading and increasing sample size will help improve accuracy.
