In my experiment, I will be testing how
effective the pinky is at estimating the
temperature of water. I was wondering how many
sensor cells there are in the human pinky?
I recently did some research on how the brain
gets these sensory details from the skin and
that the part of the brain that receives these
signals is called the Hypothalamus. Where in the
brain is the Hypothalamus and how large is it in
comparative size to the rest of the brain.?
What is the rate of temperature increase or
decrease to room temperature for water that I
should use in my experiment?
When using statistical analysis, what is the
most effective way to have realistic numbers?
I plan on using set ranges of temperatures for
people to estimate the temperatures for. I am
going to tell them what these ranges are; just
that they are hot, room temperature, and cold. I
plan on having the cold at around 30-40 degrees,
the room temperature from 60-75, and the hot at
100-110. Do you think this is a good idea or
should I just have a set temperature for each
section of the test?
Thanks for answering these questions for my
