Autonomy IssuesInformed consent seems simple enough; however, there are important issues to consider.1.The first concerns lack of autonomy.What happens when the participants lack the abilityto make a free and informed decision to voluntarily participate?.
(Page 54)Withholding Information and DeceptionIt may have occurred to you that providing all information about the study to participants mightbe unwise.Providing too much information could potentially invalidate the results of the study;for example, researchers usually will withhold information about the hypothesis of the study orthe particular condition an individual is participating in.It is generally acceptable to withhold information when the information would not affect thedecision to participate and when the information will later be provided, usually in a debriefingsession when the study is completed.Most people who volunteer for psychology research do not expect full disclosure about the studyprior to participation.However, they do expect a thorough debriefing after they have completedthe study.It may also have occurred to you that there are research procedures in which informed consent isnot necessary or even possible.When planning research, it is important to make sure that you do have good reasons not to obtaininformed consent.In research,deceptionoccurs when there is active misrepresentation of information about thenature of a study.The Milgram experiment illustrates two types of deception.
