For this week’s discussion, I will be discussing ethical conduct which implement obedience and behavior amongst the citizens in society. I will be summarizing the ethical principles for Milgram’s research which became a success amongst society to help out with obedience with the citizens here in society. I will also be discussing varies topics that is associated with ethical conduct such as, informed consent, confidentiality, deception, debriefing and institution review board which all revolves around ethical issues and ethical conduct.

The voltage started at 5 which is the lowest on the machine and the highest voltage was four fifty. The learner which is all of them who participate had an option to opt out but, they all persist on proceeding with the experiment. (Milgram, Stanley (1963). The first set of experiments were 65% which is, 26 out of 40 of experiment participants administered and, the experiments final massive at 450 volt shock. At the end of the experiment, the participants had question of why the experiment took the way it did with a shock treatment but, as I was reading the research notes and the conduction of the experiment, I figured when
