Dear Gabrial,

one of my favourites would be Karni & Sagi (1991) with 326 citations.Where practice makes perfect in texture discrimination: evidence for primary visual cortex plasticity. <https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/2052578/>
Karni A, Sagi D.
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 1991 Jun 1;88(11):4966-70. doi: 10.1073/pnas.88.11.4966.
Best regards,

> Hi Gabriel,
> maybe the following is also useful information for you: we often compare psychophysical data with results from electrophysiological recordings to infer the physiological basis of perceptual phenomena.  These recordings may be ERG recordings on the same subjects. We are often our own subjects. I think this is very important because we are able to make links between ERG recordings and perception when we are also subject which would not be possible otherwise. I consider the time in which I am my own subject as scientifically very creative.
> We were criticized by the local ethics committee with the argument that we might force collaborators, who are in a dependent employment situation, to be subjects. I argued that we would curtail our scientific creative process if we would not be our own subject and they accepted that in the end.

> 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.
