    Her lecture starts at 8 am, so hopefully her colleagues will still be eating their breakfasts. :p

    Unbelievable. When a child has a scratch on their knee you can just kiss it better and the placebo makes them believe the mild sting of pain has gone away, so that is fine. When they actually have a neuroimmune condition and you are treating them with placebos rather than researching into what is wrong with their immune systems that have been damaged by an infection, that is abusing children. Especially if parents are unaware that there is actually something physically very medically wrong with their child. The child might grow up believing they have some mental illness or something wrong with their personality when they have nothing of the sort. Real medical research is what we need, not psychology placebos for kids coupled with a lie to the parents about what is wrong with their child.

    Nice way to cut costs though.

    For those with the energy, perhaps consider writing politely to the organisers about her position.
