Open Highlights: Putting Placebos to the Test

Curated Collections

Medics have long recognised the curious power of the placebo. This Open Highlights Collection explores recent research into its biological basis and the complex ethical and practical issues that surround this phenomenon. Open Highlights use recent PLOS Biology research articles as keystones around which to nucleate a short synthesis of up to ten related research articles from other PLOS journals and from the wider Open Access corpus.
