Linking self-experimentation to past and future science: Extended measures, individual subjects, and the power of graphical presentation
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (2):264-264 (2004)
|Abstract||The case for the value of self-experimentation in advancing science is convincing. Important features of the method include (1) repeated measures of individual behavior, over extended time, to discover cause/effect relations, and (2) vivid graphical presentations. Large-scale research on Pavlovian conditioning and weight control is needed because verification could result in easy and inexpensive mitigation of a serious public health problem.|
