PSYC 3010 Application Exercise 8: Article on Illusions Follow this link: and answer the following questions about the article. Then save and upload this page. 1. In Armel and Ramachandran’s “hand scratching” experiment, what was the independent  variable? What were the conditions? (3pts) Independent variable: table being scratched Conditions: a hand may be scratched or the table may be scratched 2. In the “rubber limb” experiment, what was the independent variable? What were the  conditions? (3pts) Independent variable: pain that was inflicted when the participant saw the “rubber limb” bend  back Conditions:  bent finger back to a painful position, when in reality the finger was slightly lifted  or just seeing the rubber limb in a painful position and not lifting the finger 3. What did these two experiments demonstrate? (2pts) These experiments showed that it is an illusion.  Both the hand scratching and the rubber limb  bent in a painful shape caused the persons mind to think about the pain and caused it to inflict  pain on themselves. 4. How might these findings be applied to reducing pain in a medical environment? (1pt) This can be applied to reducing pain in the medical environment by not letting the patient see what the doctor may be doing, or if something is hurt not know that it is as bad makes it feel  better then knowing that something is broken or torn.  One example could be when the doctor puts the lidocaine in to numb up the laceration, maybe not seeing it happen can make it hurt  less or help their mind to know that it is not happening.  Also it could help the those that have amputation of an arm and leg to maybe have some feeling by thinking they really do have  feelings  in a rubber limb.  5. Try finding the primary journal articles in this story with PsycINFO and then with Google  Scholar ( Talk about your search process here. (1pt) When using PsycINFO I could not find the article or anything that was produced by Armel and  Ramachandran anywhere on the site.  When I typed in google scholar I found lots of articles  about rubber limbs and a couple on scratching hands.  I did not find an article that hand both of  these together though.
