Speaker information

Professor David Colquhoun, UCL Neuroscience, Physiology & Pharmacology

Much has been said recently about the problem of irreproducibility. It results in part from misunderstanding of statistics. Professor David Colquhoun will explain why the term statistical "significance" should never be used, and how its use has resulted in many false discoveries.
