Editor's Selections: Ineffectual exercise and autism in the water

Here are my medicine, neuroscience and psychology ScienceSeeker Editor's Selections for the week:
  • "Exercise doesn't help depression" turned out to be a stunningly poor summation of a recent article in the BMJ. Thankfully both Scicurious and Neurobonkers were on hand to set the record straight. 
  • There must have been something in the water as similarly inaccurate headlines arose from a study investigating the effects of anti-depressants on autism genes. Enter a concise breakdown of the findings  by  Neuroskeptic and order was soon restored.
