What is the best method for analysing a study in which 7 subjects are

exposed to 3 treatments and for which 5 continous dependent variables are

measured? The design is a crossover type for which my text recommends

several t-tests. Unfortunately the text procedures are for single

dependent variables. I would do a MANOVA if the sample size was larger but

due to the small N I am pretty sure the assumptions underlying MANOVA will

be violated. Plus power becomes a problem with this size N. I am not that

familiar with nonparametric stats but they seem to be directed at

experiments with one dependent variable. Can someone point me in the right

direction for a test where I can look at the 3 conditions effect of 5 dv's

with 7 subjects where I can have a hope of controlling type 1 error?

Thanks,

Tony
