Stress in biomedical research: six impossible things.
Summary of "Stress in biomedical research: six impossible things."
Biomedical research may not be more stressful than other disciplines, but our stress is compounded by some of the inherent features of biology. We consider six impossible things and what we might be able to do about them, provided they are believed by lunchtime or, with practice, before breakfast.

In the present study, we used the two-pronged trident task to investigate the neural basis of impossible figures processing by using event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Our fMR...
There are many ways to avoid responsibility, for example, explaining what happens as the work of the gods, fate, society, or the system. For engineers, "technology" or "the organization" will serve th...
