Ask an Expert: Estimation Statistics and Statistical Power

Opportunity Overview

June 4, 2020; 12:30 pm-1:30 pm EDT

This is a virtual event.

The Society for Neuroscience is a professional association for scientists and physicians whose research focuses on the brain and central nervous system.

At the heart of any research, including that which seeks to illuminate our understanding of the brain and central nervous system, is the extent to which we can understand findings and phenomena in the context of estimation statistics and statistical power.

The Society for Neuroscience will hold a webinar on “Estimation Statistics and Statistical Power.” Per the Society for Neuroscience:

“Join experts Robert Calin-Jageman and Katherine Button as they discuss their work in estimation statistics and statistical power. Watch their short videos introducing this work below, then join them along with moderator Christophe Bernard on Thursday, June 4 from 12:30 – 1:30 pm EDT to ask questions about how these statistical practices apply to your own work.

This Ask an Expert event is part of SfN’s Foundations of Rigorous Neuroscience Research (FRN) program, which aims to increase awareness of the sociological and cultural factors that influence rigorous research practices. Share topic ideas or your own experience with cultural barriers to rigor in an anonymous survey.”
