The report concerns the design of a field experiment for a military setting in which the effects of carbon monoxide on neurobehavioral variables are to be studied. A field experiment is distinguished from a survey by the fact that independent variables are manipulated, just as in the laboratory. Thus casual relationships may be discovered rather than correlations. It was proposed to study the effects of multiple levels of CO exposure on compensatory tracking (main gun pointing at a target in a tank), electroencephalogram spectra and speech discrimination. Factors which govern the experimental design were considered in detail. Statistical and control matters were discussed.
