Huron's Potholes

I'd like to share these two items authored by cognition expert Prof. David Huron at Ohio State, and used in his doctoral-level course on empirical methods in music research. The first is a list of methodological traps or "potholes," and the second is a facetious academic scenario in systematic musicology which illustrates many of them.

These are quite helpful since my paper will involve making some argumentative assumptions. Thanks for posting.
