Submission + - Use my smartphone on my cordless landline?

So... More research needed. This seems to be a common theme in science.

I would have more of a problem with a study instantly validating something instead of, we found this observation and we are trying to spend more time validating what we observe.

I don't usually respond to Anonymous Cowards but here we go. The "more research is needed" meme is a favourite from the loony altmed crowd. So I am guessing you are either Ms Ladan Eshkevari, Susan E. Mulroney, Rupert Egan, or Lixing Lao or some other loony who believes in this woo. What is needed is intelligent research. Not crap. And this "research" is, sadly, crap as I've demonstrated elsewhere in this discussion. But it is from Georgetown University, so I guess that's OK.

Let me spell it out for you in the slightly modded words from LeadSongDog above. A proper test on "St-36" would include EA of nearby non-"St-36" points. Randomly select which EA to electrify. Vary over time. Cross-correlate the measured response series to each of the EA's selection series. Repeat until p=.05
The real challenge will be to do a blind study even among the four authors to pinpoint the alleged St-36 points on a series of rats. LOL LOL LOL cry LOL cry weep, oh my fucking god this is unbelievable shit. But it is coming from Georgetown Uni so that's all right.

Dear AC, I know that's you [editorial team for Ladan Eshkevari, Susan E. Mulroney, Rupert Egan, and Lixing Lao.] Since when is comedy vitriol? Filter the logic of my comment for comedy and you might learn something. Hey I just learned something else. Georgetown University is a hotbed for this sort of crap. Amazing how such poor "science" gets past the checkers.
