[R-sig-ME] Problem with overfitting

    Hello all:

   I am trying to fit a model with lmer and doing a split-plot simplification. The data are attached. The problem is that when doing some of the anovas to compare different models, I get a p-value of 1. I have been told this may be a problem of variable overfitting. But I am doing simpler and simpler models and I still have the same problem, so I don't know where is really the problem. This is the last one:


   When simplifying "briventral:sex" and comparing the two models with an anova, I get a p-value of 1.

   Any help, suggestions and ideas will be welcome. 
   Thank you very much.
