Demand Effects in Braintraining Studies

(#1) By H. Pashler on Mon 07/30/2012 08:06 pm CDT (5 years ago)[reply]
I am worried that positive findings may sometimes occur when subjects realize that "today is the big day when we see if all my work has paid off". I have two questions: 1. What are the best ways to avoid this? 2. Are there any positive studies involving relatively "far transfer" (admittedly a vague concept) that incorporated a strong control for demand effects? Hal

See comments by Mahncke here. These offer one idea for control for demand effects: http://blog.sethroberts.net/2012/11/05/posit-science-does-it-help/#comment-1047790
