My PhD student Constanca Carvalho, colleagues and I have published a new study examining the contribution of animal, in vitro and in silico studies to current knowledge of Major Depressive Disorder, via citation analysis. The non-animal models were cited more frequently than the animal models.
The citation is: Carvalho C, Varela SAM, Marques TA, Knight A and Vicente L (2020). Are in vitro and in silico approaches used appropriately for animal-based Major Depressive Disorder research? PLoS ONE. 15(6), e0233954.
