Before using the Psychology and Neuroscience stackexchange I was more familiar with the MathOverflow which is a more mature member of the stackexchange community. This platform is used by professional mathematicians that practice both pure and applied mathematics. Furthermore, on the MathOverflow it isn't uncommon and it isn't considered unproductive to ask questions which involve a big list.
Consider the following examples:
Now, I recently asked a specific question on the existence of good neuroscience research blogs. I gave concrete examples in the case of AI to clarify what I meant, distill being an example. After a couple days without an answer I decided to share the question with a neuroscientist I have communicated with in the past, Konrad Kording.
Dr. Kording, runs a well-known neuroscience lab and isn't merely providing a list of opinions. If you check each of the blogs in his answer they are all neuroscience research blogs. I must add that the first link to https://bitsandbrains.io/ fits the question description in particular.
Consider these posts taken from bitsandbrains:
- Some thoughts on building interdisciplinary biological/data science teams
- Bilateral Homology
- Connectome Coding: Discovering the Missing Link between Genotypes and Phenotypes
This leads me to the following questions:
- Before downvoting the question, was any detailed consideration given to the answer of Dr. Kording?
- Is my question, which I discussed with other neuroscientists, imprecise?
