The placebo effect.

Manifest Density posts this entertaining thought:

From Derek Lowe's blog:

The actual mechanism of the placebo effect is a field of great interest and potentially great importance.

That's right: someday soon scientists may be working to develop a pill that can mimic the placebo effect.

I wonder if we can get that as an indication for use? That would be very difficult to prove though.
