fMRI bugs

Wow, this could be huge. 

fMRI bugs could upend years of research

In this paper at PNAS, they write: “the most common software packages for fMRI analysis (SPM, FSL, AFNI) can result in false-positive rates of up to 70%. These results question the validity of some 40,000 fMRI studies and may have a large impact on the interpretation of neuroimaging results.”

That’s not a gentle nudge that some results might be overstated: it’s more like making a bonfire of thousands of scientific papers.

      1. Thank you so much. I appreciate your prayers. It seemed like a good way to get ahead of potential developments. It’s good to not put too much trust in medical practice alone. I’m thankful for our Great Physician.
