How reliable and reproducible are findings from EEG research? #EEGmanylabs is an ambitious project creating a global network of labs to assess the credibility of results of some of the most important and influential experiments in the field.


Why do we need #EEGmanylabs?


Cognitive neuroscience research is expensive. As a result, published research tends to test novel hypotheses in small samples with highly multidimensional data-sets. While understandable, this approach has high potential for producing false positives and the replicability of novel, exciting findings goes largely untested. The #EEGmanylabs initiative aims to change this by pooling resources across distributed laboratories to revisit existing EEG hypotheses with unprecedented statistical power.


Why does #EEGmanylabs need you?


To make this project a success, we need input from as many labs as possible. We are now in the process of identifying influential studies that the community feels are ripe for replication. With your help, #EEGmanylabs will create the largest open access EEG dataset in history and in doing so, provide a robust foundation that underpins the future of cognitive neuroscience research.
