Psychological Experiments Online synthesizes the most important psychological experiments of the 20th and 21st centuries. The collection pairs 75 hours of audio and video recordings of the original experiments (when existent) with 40,000 pages of primary-source documents. These rare materials shed new light on the studies that have shaped contemporary understandings of key psychological issues such as conformity, power, obedience, delayed gratification, responsibility, aggression, conditioning, false memory, bias, prejudice, ethics, nurture, motivation, perception, and judgment.
The impact of the featured studies is far-reaching across fields as diverse as sociology, business, advertising, economics, political science, law, ethics, and the arts.
Review experiments such as Solomon Asch’s conformity, B.F. Skinner’s research with pigeons, Stanley Milgram’s research on obedience to authority, Albert Bandura’s Bobo Doll, and John B. Watson’s Little Albert experiment are just a few of those included.
