In their paper “Configuring Prospective Sensations: Experimenters Preparing Participants for ‘What They Might Feel'” David M. Edmonds and Christian Greiffenhagen investigate how in cognitive neuroscience experimenters describe and demonstrate prospective sensations for participantsIn their study they show that experimenters often describe sensations “by negation” (saying what participants will not experience) and sometimes “indirectly” (for example, by formulating what they will do). They reveal that these descriptions are elaborated through demonstrations of sensations, both on the experimenters’ and the participants’ bodies. Importantly, they document how the interplay of the description and demonstration of sensations is important in reassuring participants about the nonharmful nature of the tool and its use.
