Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Neuroscience

Hi, I am not a member of your project but do most of my work at Wikiproject Anatomy. At the anatomy project we recently finished classifying our articles and we have more than 2000 articles and redirects related to neuroanatomy (central nervous system including the spinal cord, cranial nerves not includeed).

  • Would you like to have these articles tagged within your project?
  • How about cranial nerves and their associated ganglia and branches?
  • How about the perifial nerveous systems; things like individual nerves, their ganglia, branches and so on?

If you could discuss among yourself what should fall under the scope of your project, I will gladely add your project banner to the articles (in the hope that your project members can find and will work on some of the articles of interest to both wikiprojects). Kind regards JakobSteenberg (talk) 20:35, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Speaking for myself, I would say that if it is any of those bulleted points it does indeed fit here. --Tryptofish (talk) 22:07, 29 April 2018 (UTC)
Adding: anything that is neuroanatomy is by definition a subset of neuroscience. --Tryptofish (talk) 22:08, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.


On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:49, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Draft:Visual Antipriming

Input invited about this draft. Calliopejen1 (talk) 21:32, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

I've commented there. --Tryptofish (talk) 21:43, 11 June 2018 (UTC)


As I don't like to do multiple reverts, I wonder if interested editors might take a look at recent edits to this article? Looie496 (talk) 14:20, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

I've revised it, relocated it, and tagged it for a non-primary source. I figure that's a reasonable alternative. --Tryptofish (talk) 19:05, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
Cool. Looie496 (talk) 19:38, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

Feedback request for nootropic

I'm requesting feedback on article content in nootropic. The issue is described at Talk:Nootropic#Coverage of CNS stimulants. Seppi333 (Insert ) 07:52, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

Feedback request for Template:Infobox GPCR

See WT:PHARM#Infobox GPCR examples; I'd like to have additional input on this infobox before it goes live in articles on GPCRs. This infobox is intended for articles about non-olfactory rhodopsin-like receptors and is intended to supplement {{Infobox gene}} by providing pharmacology-specific data with minimal overlap/redundancy with the information provided in the gene infobox. The discussion is obviously relevant to this WikiProject given the number and significance of the GPCRs in this class that are expressed in the brain (e.g., every monoamine/trace amine receptor except 5-HT3 receptors, among many other neurotransmitter/neuromodulator receptors).

Eyes on Saltatory conduction

It looks like someone, editing as an IP, is repeatedly spamming the page to promote their own (insignificant) work. --Tryptofish (talk) 20:24, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

I've watchlisted it. Looie496 (talk) 22:58, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Eyes on Biological neuron model

... would be helpful. Looie496 (talk) 22:30, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

Ugh, the whole page strikes me as so conjectural that it's difficult to justify what should be included and what should not. But, yeah, it sure looks like refspam. I made two edits that change the wording from being like "this has been shown", to being like "this has been conjectured", working off how other parts of the page use the word "conjecture". Maybe that will take some of the fun out of it. I'd also move it to somewhere else on the page, but I have no idea where. --Tryptofish (talk) 22:46, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

Neuroplasticity article

At Neuroplasticity (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views), we need opinions on how to cover some material with regard to WP:Lead and WP:Due. See Talk:Neuroplasticity#"Recent articles". A permalink for it is here. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 08:32, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

Clinical neuroscience

I've just started a discussion at Talk:Clinical neuroscience#Page focus, where more input would be welcome. Thanks. --Tryptofish (talk) 21:01, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

Talk:Acclimatisation (neurones)

Some fresh eyes would be helpful. Thanks. --Tryptofish (talk) 21:59, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Request for the Neuromorphic engineering article


Hello! On behalf of Intel as part of my work at Beutler Ink, I've submitted a request here to move mention of Intel Loihi from the "See also" section to the "Examples" section, using appropriate secondary sourcing. Given the chip's significance and mention in related Wikipedia articles, a brief mention in the article's prose seems more appropriate than having a redirect in the "See also" section. I've not received any feedback from editors to date, so I'm curious if any WikiProject Neuroscience members would be willing to take a look. The edit request offers more detail, as well as markup for implementation, if helpful. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 18:45, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

This edit request has been answered. Inkian Jason (talk) 14:53, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Review needed

Could somebody please review Draft:Innovations in Clinical Neuroscience, specifically as to whether it meets WP:JOURNALCRIT or not? Leave your comments on the draft. Thanks. -- RoySmith (talk) 01:55, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

I wish that Randykitty were still here (sigh). @DGG: maybe this would be something where you would have a feel for it? --Tryptofish (talk) 17:44, 8 September 2018 (UTC)
