I'm very interested in this project for several reasons. At first, from the title, my skeptical defenses went up as I expected to an experiment centered around 'all natural product' buzzword pseudoscience. Instead I see a promising experiment, from a high schooler no less, delving into the complex and fascinating science of pharmacognosy. We live in a world where people seem to focus on some fictitious separation of the natural world and science, with baseless moralizing on better or worse. I'm excited to see what you discover, and you've already identified some key points where positive evidence could lead to more robust study and development of improved pharmaceuticals and treatments down the road. Best of luck!

Can treatment with natural medicine be used to prevent Parkinson's symptoms?

No problem. I assume it would all eventually be laid out in the experimental design section of your thesis, and you have more important things to do than write it twice :)

How does sleep deprivation impact problematic eating?

This is a great project topic. Sleep depravation is an important topic, especially in modern society with pressures pushing so many to low level chronic sleep depravation. I am curious about your variable level choice. The description mentioned other studies, so maybe it's just context I'm missing, but why 4 and 8 hours, and only a single night? Obviously the 8hr is a standard control, but is 4 hrs the right amount to be "sleep depraved"? Would more information be gained from a multilevel variable, say 0, 2, 4, 8 hrs? Maybe additional variable levels would create significance issues with the number of test subjects? Would appreciate some commentary to that effect, and best of luck!
