AbstractThe New York Times recently reported on scientists who include members of their own families in their research projects. Some performed MRI scans, some recorded their children's every word, others used their experience as parents as ideas for future controlled studies. The scientists claim that involving their children in their research has brought them closer together. However, this trend does raises questions about consent, the the potential for bias and perceptions of diminished credibility of final, published study results.
