So called 'non-significant' p values are often interpreted as evidence for the null hypothesis. This interpretation, however, is false. The aim of this project will be to reanalyse a large number of p values published in the multiple sclerosis cognition literature to determine whether the interpretation of null findings is typically justified, or whether low statistical power is a convincing explanation. This project will involve secondary analysis only of previously published findings.
