@alexwild Put another, more succinct way: “Don’t write for the world’s richest person for free.”

For #women in #science, our work often gets framed in a way that focuses on gender. It’s not a bad thing, but there’s so much more to who we are.

Many of us didn’t set out trying to be “females in science” so much as simply “scientists” doing research we love.

Our contributions are frequently less about shattering glass ceilings, and more about succeeding at institutions that weren’t built by us or for us.

The is a good use case for the internet as it was meant to be: interoperable, free to access, based on open standards detailing communication protocols, intent in enhancing the reach of open information. The opposite is the walled garden. There's a report that some, in exiting the other site, are flocking to one such infamous walled garden.

#introduction: I am a cognitive neuroscientist at the Ernst Strüngmann Institute in Frankfurt, Germany. I like structure and beauty and somehow that draws me to #oscillations in the brain, mainly recorded with #electrophysiology.

when I have time, I like to make animations of concepts related to that:

maybe starting on a new platform will allow for more playfulness again, which I enjoyed at lot in the beginning on twitter. 🙂


Hi, I am a Chilean neuroscientist living and Working in Montreal. I am an advocate for Women in science, specially latinas and underrepresented groups. I am pationately against pseudoscience and misinformation. My research is on brain cortical development and memory formation. Happy to meet you here in #Introduction #newtoMastodon #womeinSTEM #neuroscience

I just made a 🧠 💭 @cogneurophys :amaze: b/c I didn't see much to collect neurobio of LnM, cognition, neural circuit mechanisms, etc., which I'd love to see in my timeline w/o matching hashtags.

If it's a good idea, you'd need to :boost_ok: b/c I'm a teeny whisperer here right now!


We're hiring!
2 permanent lectureships at Nottingham University, in the School of Psychology

All areas of Psychology considered,
including cognitive and computational neuroscience.


WOWWWWWWW! Northern Ireland has its first astronaut....and she's an astronomer! Huge congratulations Rosemary 👏👏 👏

(FYI: I've seen a lot of people describe her as "another British astronaut". But unless she identifies as such, Rosemary is *not* British. The UK's full title is the United Kingdom of Great Britain AND Northern Ireland. Rosemary is from NI 👍 So "UK astronaut" is correct)

I wrote an editorial about the #AntimicrobialResistance crisis. It covers the need for a #Global #Equitable approach, #resistance in neglected #fungi & #parasites, the promise of new #antibiotics, sharing of #sequence data, idiotic policies that risk antibiotic stewardship & more

Please share it far and wide - this #WorldAntimicrobialAwarenessWeek we've not been as loud as others, or as loud as we need to

The antimicrobial resistance crisis needs action now

In our recent paper, we found 3 new trypanosome species in #squash #bees. I am looking for collaborators to work on describing these new species. Any suggestions on who to contact would be greatly appreciated!

We have positions, lots of opportunities: computation, behavior, fMRI, electrophysiology, microscopy and often a mix of approaches -- all about arm/hand motor control and motor learning. Plus you help make the reading list! Please share.

It's live! I'm hiring a technician to process and analyze thousands of stickleback gut microbiomes.

TO APPLY: check, Staff Positions, Search #496991 to upload a resume, cover letter, and contact information for three (3) professional references.

Full information about the position here:

Exciting new preprint from the @DrAnneCarpenter / Shantanu Singh ( lab and mine! Hop into the 🧵to learn a bit more about "Interpreting Image-based Profiles using Morpheus and Single-Cell Visualization", or check it out here!


"In retrospect, maybe Twitter will appear as the last gasp, admittedly hybrid and possibly monstrous, of the old print culture in the new digital age. And I suspect this accounts for many of the derangements and absurdities that characterize the platform."

Very nice essay on social media by @lmsacasas


Tomorrow I will be striking in pursuit of fairer pensions and to protest inequality, excessive workloads and casualisation for my UCU colleagues

Also tomorrow, my children’s school teachers will be striking in pursuit of a fair and just pay settlement

So, plans are afoot for a day of wee teach-outs

- Home Economics: bake cookies for the picket line

- Politics tutorial: what’s a picket line?

Music & history lessons: protest songs through the decades. Suggestions welcome.

Billions of bees and butterflies are killed on North American roads every year:

Replace these “wireless telegraphs” with smartphones, update the dress a little, and this vision of "isolating technology" from a 1906 issue of Punch magazine could easily be from today: #history #technology #illustration #histodon

Hi #ScienceMastodon, time for an #introduction!

I'm an #EvoDevo biologist interested in how tissue #mechanics influences the #evolution of #morphogenesis. I study a deep and mysterious epithelial invagination that forms at the head-trunk boundary of #flies during #gastrulation, known as the #CephalicFurrow (see video below!). Currently, based in Germany as a postdoc in the Tomancak Lab at MPI-CBG. Looking forward to meeting you!

#DevBio #mechanobiology #microscopy #lightsheet #embryos

I am neuroscientist and engineer. Our lab at Johns Hopkins University BME is interested in how the brain computes information about the world and how this representation is shaped by sensory experience from early development up until old age. We focus on the auditory system and use in vitro and in vivo optical and electrophysiological methods, behavioral approaches, etc.
