The Strange Powers of the Placebo Effect
The placebo effect is believing something isn't what it is (which is usually nothing) but still feeling the effects. There are a lot of twists with placebos because it works through psychological effects rather than psychical effects. Our minds create the effects of any given placebo, and what to expect, which is why it's used in all clinical trials. This video goes through some of the more interesting factoids in relation to the placebo effect. Created by Daniel Keogh and Luke Harris.
