Does ginkgo biloba enhance memory? In an experiment to find out, subjects were assigned randomly to take ginkgo biloba supplements or a placebo. Their memory was tested to see whether it improved. The numbers reported are the number of items recalled before and after taking a supplement. Here are boxplots comparing the two groups. At the top of the next page is some computer output from a two-sample t-test computed for the data.
