Horrible experiments that were done on human beings

Lunchtime today, I was chatting with my colleague and I ending up talking about this morbid experiment that I watched when I was in university. The experiment is called the Milgram Experiment.

You can read more about it here. http://www.simplypsychology.org/milgram.


I thought that people might be interested in some of these experiments that I have read about.

It's actually quite scary to think about the behaviours of humans will change in certain situations.

If you are interested, there is this book called Malicious Intent by Kathryn Fox which mentioned about the Stockholm syndrome and the effects of sensory deprivation.
