> It wouldn't be so hard to give them a cognitive battery (of the kinds of things patients report problems with) both before the treatment and during their relapse so they are matched for emotional state lol. Good luck getting funding for that one...).

And the trouble is that it is a problem for ethics boards too (sigh).

You won't get ethical approval to do a study of the form 'hey we would like to perform this intervention on a bunch of people and what we think we are going to find is that it harms them - but you know, we would just like to check'.

I mean you can get 'effects of cat falling 50 stories' through, but probably not people anymore (seeing how long people could survive freezing temperatures was thought to be important with respect to figuring out how long the soldiers had in the water before we needed to get them out) and Harlow type experiments... Well... Still teach us much about the nature of love (and probably aren't thought to directly test the effects of deprivation). Sigh. I don't know :-(
