When I read the underlined, ( not saying it's you), it leads me to wonder if people take as much time keeping up with neuroscience as they do over the stuff they believe is true?
Your brain does not process information, retrieve knowledge or store memories. In short: your brain is not a computer

Power failure: why small sample size undermines the reliability of neuroscience
A study with low statistical power has a reduced chance of detecting a true effect, but it is less well appreciated that low power also reduces the likelihood that a statistically significant result reflects a true effect. Here, we show that the average statistical power of studies in the neurosciences is very low. The consequences of this include overestimates of effect size and low reproducibility of results. There are also ethical dimensions to this problem, as unreliable research is inefficient and wasteful. Improving reproducibility in neuroscience is a key priority and requires attention to well-established but often ignored methodological principles.
