Today, COVID-19 has shown that science is very necessary for the survival of humanity and that research funding should be maintained and even increased. But we also saw that the economy in science is not the only thing that needs to change. We are talking about open science.
Given the problem that has existed for several years regarding the delay in the publication of results (one year) and the opacity of knowledge sharing, in 2020 the research process had to move to open science very quickly so that scientists could find an effective and rapid response to the pandemic that was putting human life at risk worldwide.
At Auditory Cortex we know that open science is the best system for transparent and quality research, and that it will help to better understand the functioning of cortical deafness and auditory agnosias. Therefore, Auditory Cortex is committed to conducting its investigation in the most transparent manner possible in order to achieve the objectives proposed in our project.
