## Abstract

Let $p$ be a prime number and $F$ a field containing a root of unity of order $p$. We relate recent results on vanishing of triple Massey products in the mod-$p$ Galois cohomology of $F$, due to Hopkins, Wickelgren, Mináċ, and Tân, to classical results in the theory of central simple algebras. For global fields, we prove a stronger form of the vanishing property.
 Keywords: Galois cohomology, Brauer groups, triple Massey products, global fields
