There is, as you probably know, a very long tradition of small-N psychophysics where the authors serve as participants.

Please let us know why your IRB is interested in this question.

Dear vision community,

In response to a recent proposal to my IRB, I have received a request to provide examples of manuscripts in which the PI is also the subject in the manuscript.  I am hoping that some of you may be able to help me track some down. The more impactful the better, whether that be indicated by citation count, recognition of the publication venue, or any other metric, as long as it will be evident to a non-expert.

Extra points if the study involves some element of motor behavior / perception & action.

Thanks in advance,
