A sample of 20 children is obtained and the children are separated into two roughly equivalent groups. The children in one group are given a drink containing 300 mg of caffeine and the other group gets a group with no caffeine.

Oxytocin is a naturally occurring brain chemical that is nicknamed the love hormone because it seems to play a role in the formation of social relationships such as mating pairs and parent-child bonding. A recent study demonstrated that oxytocin appears to increase peoples tendency to trust others (Kosfeld, Heinrichs, Zak, Fischbacher, and Fehr, 2005).

For this experimental study, identify the independent variable and the dependent variable.
