Sir Charles Scott Sherrington is one of my science heroes, so I'm featuring him on my cogsci profile. He is often credited with coining the word "synapse."

comment Where to find historical dream activity data?
I don't think Google will provide the answer, but there may be studies that have tracked this over time from sleep lab data (tracking the percentage of phasic REM sleep would give you an semi-objective ballpark). I haven't looked to see.

For instance, a survey on a popular masturbation site I'm sure you're aware of the term "selection bias", that's a textbook example of it.

comment Where can I find a longitudinal study with a binary response?
People tend to be very protective of their raw data. Your best bet would be to hunt down a paper that is of interest to you, contact the authors, and see if they will give you permission to analyze their data set. Theoretically, if a study is funded by a federal agency (e.g., NIH) the investigator should at least have to produce something, but in practice this is not always the case.

@JeromyAnglim I tweaked the title a bit because it will probably get tweeted by the site.

I'm flagging this for no references and reporting you to a moderator immediately. ;)
