Neuroscience From Underground was a blog operated by me, Andrew Neff, from 2019 to 2020. I was finishing my Ph.D. in Translational Neuroscience at Wayne State University, and moving to Atlanta to start a new role as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Emory University.

This blog was written for anyone who was interested in, but skeptical of biological psychology. I started writing because by the time I was finishing school, I was angry; I thought that neuroscientists had tricked me into being more optimistic than I should have been.

To me, and the handful of other contributors to this site, neuroscience will be an indispensable part of psychological progress in the 21st century - self-report and behavior alone will not take us to the promised land. But, today, in 2020ish, there’s not a lot that neuroscience can do, no matter what Elon Musk tells you.
