" While none of the pre-defined analysis results is significant, a post hoc variant of Analysis 3 that includes the control data is significant with p = 0.012 to have occurred by chance, under a null hypothesis."
" While the study in Walach et al. (2016) employed about 300 participants, the study here employed 20. However the p-values for both experiments are comparable, of order p = 0.01 when looking for the difference between participant data and control data, and using simulated or permutated data to estimate the background. Based on this finding, one may wonder whether the number of participants plays an important role."
