A question for the social scientists

Last night I participated in an Economics experiment here at the university.

Would it be okay for me to email the professor in charge with comments about the experience? Not criticism, but something like, "because it was a simulation, I didn't expect to feel so strongly about the choices I was making, and was surprised when I did"?

If that would contaminate his results in any way, I'll skip it, but I really was intrigued by my emotional reactions.
