Independent and Dependent Variables
The Independent variable is the pill dosage of LPS. The dependent variable is the amount of Inflammation in blood samples of the elderly subjects.
(Identify the independent and dependent variable in the mini-problem.)
(Add details about your experimental design)
We are going to randomly choose subjects who are between 65-75 years of age. We will not be considering any applicants who are currently on taking anti-inflammatory medications. We will choose 84 subjects total, 42 men and 42 women. We will make participation in this experiment voluntary and will require applicants to fill out forms which outline prior health conditions, medical records, etc. just for reference.
(Discuss considerations of how subjects are to be selected.)
