one sided or two sided testing

Dear Emanual,

just a comment on the posts below. 'Prior' knowledge should come from independent data - e.g. collected in a different experiment or from another finding in the literature. It's best if you find some prior knowledge that you can *CITE* - otherwise it'll typically get pretty difficult to publish your one-sided test. I guess you knew this already (so please do not feel insulted by this post), just wanted to save you the trouble with reviewers in the very unlikely event that you didn't. 

Good luck for your study,
Michael
