November 15 – Benefits of Open Data and Open Stimuli

Morton Ann Gernsbacher, Vilas Research Professor and Sir Frederic Bartlett Professor – UW-Madison

Scientists across many disciplines are increasing their efforts to improve the reproducibility of their research. One set of efforts involves greater transparency. In this presentation, I’ll address the benefits – both to researchers and to their studies – of open data and open stimuli, as well as the platforms and techniques that enable those benefits.
