A nutrition store in the mall is selling “Memory Booster” which is a concoction of herbs and minerals that has a effect on memory performance. To test the effectiveness of the herbal mix, a researcher obtains a sample of n = 16 people and has each person take the suggested dosage each day for 4 weeks. At the end of the four-week period, each individual takes a standardized memory test. The scores from the sample produced a mean of M = 26 with a sample variance of s 2 = 64. In the general population, the standardized test is known to have a mean of μ = 20. How are the samples related?

One sample of rats serves as a control group and receives a placebo. A second sample of rats receive a drug that lowers brain levels of serotonin. Then the researcher tests the animals by recording the number of aggressive responses each of the rats display.

### What students are saying

• 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.
