Logical and methodological issues affecting genetic studies of humans reported in top neuroscience journals

Abstract:

Genetics and neuroscience are two areas of science that pose particular methodological problems because they involve detecting weak signals (i.e., small effects) in noisy data. In recent years, increasing numbers of studies have attempted to bridge these disciplines by looking for genetic factors associated with individual differences in behaviour, cognition and brain structure or function.
