RESEARCH ARTICLE – Estimating the accuracy of muscle response

Testing: Two randomised-order blinded


Anne M. Jensen1,2*, Richard J. Stevens1,2 and Amanda J. Burls 3 Abstract Background:

Manual muscle testing (MMT) is a non-invasive assessment tool used by a variety of health care providers to evaluate neuromusculoskeletal integrity, and muscular strength in particular. In one form of MMT called muscle response testing (MRT), muscles are said to be tested, not to evaluate muscular strength, but neural control. One established, but insufficiently validated, application of MRT is to assess a patient’s response to semantic stimuli (e.g. spoken lies) during a therapy session. Our primary aim was to estimate the accuracy of MRT to distinguish false from true spoken statements, in randomised and blinded experiments. A secondary aim was to compare MRT accuracy to the accuracy when practitioners used only their intuition to differentiate false from true spoken statements.

RESEARCH ARTICLE –  The Effect of Intention on Decreasing Human Anxiety and Depression

The Effect of Intention on Decreasing Human Anxiety and Depression via Broadcasting from an Intention-Host Device-Conditioned Experimental Space by William A. Tiller, Ph.D. and Cynthia R. Reed, Th.D ABSTRACT (Reed Thesis, 2005) Two experiments, one double blind, were conducted to explore the effects of intention on anxiety and depression utilizing an Intention-Imprinted Electronic Device (IIED) on adult subjects throughout the Central United States, Canada, and Mexico.
