I keep missing the deadline to have these posts up by Friday. However, I will continue to be stubborn and call them “Friday Paper List” posts.
Also I wanted to point out this video from AsapSCIENCE right here. If you have never seen any of their videos then you are missing out. As a huge optogenetics fanboy, I’ve watched more than my fair share of videos describing optogenetics. I like this one though because I found it unique and it provides a fresh take on communicating how and what optogenetics does in a way that is abstract and easy to follow.
Finally for those of you working on writing your own papers, I think the message from this blog post is spot on and gives great advice.
A few more papers are added to the pile below:
