Subject: [DCHAS-L] Lab coats and learning

I remember seeing an academic article in the last two or so years that described research into the impact of wearing lab coats on learning associated with lab work in teaching labs. (Or something like that.) I remember that there was actual data involved rather than simply the writer?s intuition, which is the case for most of the discussion of this in the popular press which is easily google-able.

I can?t come up with any keywords that find this article on my hard disk and wonder if anyone else remembers such research and could suggest ways to find the article?

Thanks for any help with this.
