Hello again, fellow vision scientists!

I would like to thank you all again for your participation in this email
thread, and the citations you have very graciously provided.  For your
convenience, here is a google doc that includes *most* of the contributions
I have received from the group.
I have kept contributions in the format in which they were submitted.  Only
a few were left out because they were not vision, and a few more because a
proper citation was not provided.

Some have asked for more information about my request.  This request was
motivated by the need to convince my IRB that it is a common practice in
vision and psychophysics for the PI to also act as a participant in a study
of her or his own design.  Thanks to your help, I can make this
*abundantly *clear. Why did they need to be convinced?  To be quite frank,
I'm not sure. They were unusually non-specific, even when I sought more
information. To their defense, I have not had a negative interaction with
my usually IRB in the six years at my home institution, and until this
point have considered them to be very-cooperative and reasonable.  What has
changed?  I can only speculate, but I fear that the roadblocks in place may
have come from up-above, and may be somehow related to the unusual
circumstances surrounding COVID19. It is an ongoing discussion.

Thank you all,
- gD
