 Placebo Effect

Plasebo Etkisi

Imagine you have volunteered for a study that determines the effectiveness of a new headache drug. You take the pill you have been given, believing that it will help your headache. You find that your headache feels much better after taking the pill. Later, you are told that you did not actually receive the new medicine in the study at all but were given a placebo instead.

A placebo is something given to a person that has no real physical effect. If you were not given the medication, why did your headache feel better after you took the pill you were given? The answer to this question is that you experienced the placebo effect. The placebo effect is a phenomenon that occurs when a person believes he or she is receiving real treatment and reports an improvement in his or her condition.
