COMPARING THE EFFECTS OF NUTRACEUTICAL INTERVENTIONS When reporting the results of timed cognitive tasks times, it is informative to not only state the results of parametric statistical tests and p-values but also report the average millisecond improvement that is observed in the treatment group. Further, if the mean difference in reaction times has also been found to change in the placebo group, then the mean change in the treatment group above and beyond the change observed in the placebo group is the most informative metric.
