    How could hundreds of peer-reviewed studies possibly be so wrong? There may be a way to explain it, and it’s shaking researchers to their cores. Illustration by David Parkins/Nature In 1998, psychologists found evidence of a tantalizing theory: We all have a finite mental store of energy for self-control and decision-making.

    In 2005, John Ioannidis, a professor of medicine at Stanford University, published a paper, “Why most published research findings are false,” mathematically showing that a huge number of published papers must be incorrect. He also looked at a number of well-regarded medical research findings, and found that, of 34 that had been retested, 41% had […]
