Placebo effect research help

Postby matt_307 » Sat Mar 29, 2014 11:53 am

For my science project, I'm comparing placebo "energy drinks" to energy drinks to water in athletic performance and I need some keywords to guide my research. Right now, all I have is:

placebo effect
energy drinks
water
athletic performance

Does anyone have any other keywords I can add to my list?

Thanks in advance

How about:

enhancing
supplements
boosters
testosterone
anabolic steroids
genetics
psychological
caffeine

These might give you some additional perspectives on how human physical performance can be increased. The human body/mind is a lot more complex than we understand and there's more to performance than just putting some good fuel into the tank. Good luck.

Hello!
You could also focus on key words such as:
heart rate
pulse
speed
hydration/dehydration
serving size (regarding the energy drink itself)
