Title Study design for microgravity human physiology experiments
Bibliographic information Feb. 1993, Vol.64, No.2, p.153-157. 21 ref.
Abstract A step-by-step approach to designing and conducting a small N study is presented. The technique provides a useful method for obtaining the optimum scientific value from studies performed on limited number of subjects in the limited time available in microgravity. An example is given of a small N study design used to plan an investigation of the effects of a substantial height increase on spinal cord function at microgravity.
