"I write to discover what I know."
Welcome to the articles page! Whilst we will share interesting papers from the literature, the main highlight of this page is the content that has been written by you! That’s right, we want you to share with us any essays and articles on neuroscience that you have written and would like to share with others.
As touched on in the quote above by American novelist Flannery O’Connor, writing is an excellent way to organise your thoughts and ideas and consolidate your understanding. The activity engages your higher-order thinking, challenging your creativity, organisation and logic. Furthermore, you are forced to consider how your words will be interpreted by a reader, developing in you a theory of mind! So, we encourage you to try and write something about the neuroscience that intrigues you and submit it to be published onto our page!
If you are interested in submitting an article, check out our guidance below!

The COVID-19 pandemic, caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is of a scale not seen since the 1918 influenza pandemic. Although the predominant clinical presentation is with respiratory disease, neurological manifestations are being recognised increasingly. On the basis of knowledge of other coronaviruses, especially those that caused the severe acute respiratory syndrome and Middle East respiratory syndrome epidemics, cases of CNS and peripheral nervous system disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 might be expected to be rare.
