Example: You may know about microelectronics and be good at detailed  work. You find out that many researchers are anxious to discover the  migration patterns of butterflies so you mount an integrated circuit  transmitter on a butterfly and thereby trace the behavior of the free  ranging butterfly.  These are research problems which capture your interest while reading.  While reading you will often wonder why, or will disagree, or will realize  that you have a better idea than the original author.  Example: While you were reading about jet lag and its effects on sleep the first  night, you realize that the author failed to control for light cycle. You try stretching  either the light period or stretching the dark period to make up the phase shift. You  implement this by changing the cabin illumination period on various trans-Atlantic  flights, and monitoring the passengers sleep for the next three days.
