…was not alive at the time of scanning

Еще к вопросу о false positives: знаменитое исследование про мертвого лосося, которому показывали картинки людей в социальный ситуациях.

Вот этот великий постер

Subject. One mature Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar) participated in the fMRI study. The salmon was approximately 18 inches long, weighed 3.8 lbs, and was not alive at the time of scanning.
Task. The task administered to the salmon involved completing an open-ended mentalizing task. The salmon was shown a series of photographs depicting human individuals in social situations with a specified emotional valence. The salmon was asked to determine what emotion the individual in the photo must have been experiencing.

Кроме шуток, я действительно считаю, что это одно из лучших исследований за последнее время
