Emily Moonan 905442263 Behavioral Study of Obedience Discussion Questions 1. What steps did Milgram take to ensure the authenticity of the situation to the research participant? The subjects were told they were participating in “a study of memory and learning at Yale University” (Milgram, 437). The experiment was also held “on the grounds of Yale University” (Milgram, 438) which made the experiment appear very legitimate so the participants believed that they were participating in a learning study. The “experiment was explained to them very well; they were told the experiment was meant to help them figure out the “effect of punishment on learning” and whether who was giving the punishment made a difference (Milgram, 438). 2.

What did the experimenters do to ameliorate any negative effects the study may have had on the participants?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
