Transcript of Case study - Phineas Gage

Case study - Phineas Gage
informed consent?
cultural bias of researchers
he was a male (quite calm in the situation)
no techonoogy, biased methods
Case study on how brain damage affects behavior
Doctor John Harlow studied Phineas Gage in 1848
Phineas suffered an accident when he was 25, in which a metal rod went through his head -> damage in frontal lobes -> behavioral changes
Why is it a case study?
In-depth study of a individual
Study can't be replicated ethically
It is difficult to generalize from this study
no theoretical generalization
no representational generalization
but maybe inferential generalisation
Other issues
