Editor rating: 8 / 10Andrew Gray –– The author explains the importance of estimating sources of variation, including measurement error, when designing studies, and even more importantly, provides practical guidance and software support to enable researchers, from a much wider range of disciplines than just PET studies, to use the information presented here.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Tim Doyle –– Understanding the young athlete is important to ensure we develop them appropriately, not just so they perform well, but so we ensure their longevity in sport by keeping them injury free.
Editor rating: 8 / 10C. Robert Cloninger –– Pain is a common and serious medical problem, made more important by the current opioid crissis. This is a thorough study of basic conditioning mechanisms that adds to our understanding of the role of external painful stimuli.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Joao Rocha –– The study of Lopez and collaborators demonstrated that some female dieters are more susceptible to the effects of effortful self-control than others. These dieters subsequently fail to recruit brain regions associated with inhibitory control, which may determine their impaired ability to resist subsequent food temptations.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Bob Patton –– A useful review on an important issue
Editor rating: 8 / 10Antonio Palazón-Bru –– A paper to determine that the Spanish version of this test is useful for clinical practice.
Section Editor rating: 8 / 10Stephen Macknik –– The editor and reviewers are enthusiastic.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Mario Negrello –– This article advances of our understanding of motor synergies with a well quantified case of motor abundance, clear methods and meaningful results. It uses uncontrolled manifold analysis (UCM) to model and quantify motor abundance, and provides support for the interesting idea that neural systems help shape motor abundance.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Kevin Black –– The authors do real science here, following up on an initial finding from a pilot study and reporting the outcome appropriately. That may sound obvious, but in the real world of research these days it is a delightful breath of fresh hair.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Jafri Abdullah –– the number of clusters have always been debatable,
