Welcome to NeuroSushi!

This blog was created with the purpose of breaking down cutting edge neuroscience into bite-sized maki pieces :)

The blog will feature weekly paper reviews and interviews with leading researchers from different parts of the field.

User contributions may also be accepted for suggestions or even full artciles.

Thanks for reading and hopefully learning some new things too in the future :)
