Unformatted text preview: In a scientific research article, the section that contains a brief summary of the other sections is the Selected Answer: 0 e. Abstract Correct Answer: 0 e. Abstract an 17 1 out of1 points Dr.john Jones purchases a group of adult rats from a supplier. He measures the maximal oxygen uptake (VOZmax) of each rat at the beginning of the study. He keeps the rats inactive in their cages for 6 weeks, and then measures the VOZmax of each rat again. He then subjects all the rats to a 6-week treadmill training program and measures the VOZmax again at the conclusion of the training. The rats are then kept inactive in their cages for a final 6 weeks, after which he measures the VOZmax for the 4th and final time. The hypothesis was that the VOZmax would be unchanged after the first inactive period, would increase after 6 weeks of training, and decrease after 6 weeks of detraining. Selected Answer: 0 b. longitudinal Correct Answer: 0 b. longitudinal Response This is an example of a lo_ngitudinal study because there is only one group, each rat serves as its own control, and Feedback: identical measurements are made repeatedly on each rat after different treatments. Incidentally, the type of statistical approach used in this study would be called "repeated measures". A longitudinal study with repeated measures is a strong design, particularly when the number of subjects is limited, because it circumvents the problem of individual differences between subjects. Unlike a cross-sectional study where the treatment groups consist of different individuals with different characteristics, in a longitudinal study each subject is measured under each of the different experimental conditions. Therefore, the control condition is studied on the same subject as the experimental condition, eliminationg the limitation of individual differences. Can you think of any potential limitations or weaknesses of a longitudinal study? an 18 1 out of1 points Research scientists should report all conflicts of interest.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
