Default Psychohistory experiments

I'm working on a world that has secretly been messed about with by ruthless social scientists for centuries. The idea is that this world had regressed technologically to around TTL3 (actually down to TTL0 and worked its way up again), so when the Scouts found it, they interdicted it to protect the local population, just as they've done with a lot of other worlds. But in the case of this particular world, a very powerful academic institution managed to get the whole world transferred to its authority for the purpose of academic research. The date for this is around 300 and those callous ruthless scientists immediately began running experiments with no regard for the feelings and fate of their test subjects.

But what sort of experiments? They will have to be kept secret from the locals (so as not to contaminate the results, of course). This is a rich, powerful institution, but funds are still going to be finite. That and the need for discretion will limit the scope. So if you were an institute scholar eager to get a research project of your very own, what schemes would you submit to the Planning Board?
