  • Massive Individualized N-of-1 Experiments (MINEs)

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The project will enroll up to 10,000 adult volunteers in individualized experiments (N-of-1 trials) designed to assess the individual-level effects of any of five interventions on three outcomes. The five interventions are: gratitude journaling, mindfulness meditation, random acts of kindness, physical activity, and laughter therapy. The three outcomes are stress, cognitive focus, and happiness. Each participant will engage in the selected activity in 3 day intervals, separated at random by 3 day intervals of usual activity, for a total of six 3-day periods (18 days).
