A key recognition among those who write on the statistical crisis in science is that the pressure to publish attention-getting articles can incentivize researchers to produce eye-catching but inadequately scrutinized claims. We may see much the same sensationalism in broadcasting metastatistical research, especially if it takes the form of scapegoating or banning statistical significance.

Quantitative computed tomography (QCT) may be useful in detecting high-risk patients with coronary atherosclerosis. Assessment of plaque composition using fixed Hounsfield unit (HU) thresholds is infl...
Anthropometric z-scores used commonly for diagnosis and determining degree of malnutrition, specifically body mass index (BMIz), weight-for-length (WLz), and mid-upper arm circumference (MUACz), are n...
Purpose Cannabis is a widely used drug both medically and recreationally. The aim of this study was to determine if cannabis smoking is associated with changes in auditory function, as measured by beh...
Thyroglobulin antibody (TG-Ab) and thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPO-Ab) are cornerstone biomarkers for autoimmune thyroid diseases, and establishment of appropriate thresholds is crucial for physician...
To examine existence of connection between fat utilization points, both maximal and minimal with individual metabolic thresholds in different subjects. As a consequence, this innovative ap...
Aim of the study is to determine heat pain thresholds (HPT in °C) and cold pain thresholds (CPT in °C) during topical capsaicin 8% application, and mechanical pain thresholds (MPT in g) ...
This study is designed for clinical validation of the novel ultrasound device (Bindex®, Bone Index Finland Ltd.). In a preliminary study technique has been validated in Finnish elderly wo...
The purpose of this study is to characterize the heat pain tolerance threshold (HPTolTr) in primary hyperalgesic skin after topical capsaicin application, and to assess heat pain and mecha...
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a foam rolling intervention on pressure pain thresholds (PPT) of the ipsilateral antagonist and contralateral muscle groups. Through...
The testing of the acuity of the sense of hearing to determine the thresholds of the lowest intensity levels at which an individual can hear a set of tones. The frequencies between 125 and 8000 Hz are used to test air conduction thresholds and the frequencies between 250 and 4000 Hz are used to test bone conduction thresholds.
The minimum amount of stimulus energy necessary to elicit a sensory response.
Transmission of sound waves through vibration of bones in the SKULL to the inner ear (COCHLEA). By using bone conduction stimulation and by bypassing any OUTER EAR or MIDDLE EAR abnormalities, hearing thresholds of the cochlea can be determined. Bone conduction hearing differs from normal hearing which is based on air conduction stimulation via the EAR CANAL and the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE.
