A virtual reprise of the Stanley Milgram obedience experiments.

Layne Kalbfleisch AGI Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here HowardSylvia Terbeck British journal of psychology The psychology of persecutory ideation I: This study was not a direct replication in procedure of Milgram’s experiment.

In fact, Slater et al showed interaction with the ghe human rather than just as observers.

Notify me of new posts via email. Stanley Milgram’s s experimental findings that people would administer apparently lethal electric shocks to a stranger at the behest of an authority figure remain critical for understanding obedience.

Our results show that in spite of the fact that all participants knew for sure that neither the stranger nor the shocks were real, the participants who saw and heard her tended to respond to the situation at the subjective, behavioural and physiological levels as if it were real.

It is an artificial situation, and however much the participants became immersed in the experiment, it was not the same as real life situations. Surround-screen projection-based virtual reality: Yet, due to the ethical controversy that his experiments ignited, it is nowadays impossible to carry out direct experimental studies in this area.

Results and future developments from a virtual reality classroom for assessing attention processes in children with ADHD. Their stress responses were raised as judged by sweating and heart rate compared with the 11 ex;eriments participants. How did the researchers know that the participants were interacting with the virtual Learner as if human?

Yet, due to the expegiments controversy that his experiments ignited, it is nowadays impossible to carry out direct experimental studies in this area.

A virtual reprise of the Stanley Milgram obedience experiments.

Activity in ventromedial prefrontal cortex covaries with sympathetic skin conductance level: It is expensive and difficult to carry out such experiments requiring complex equipment in a virtual reality laboratory. Following the style of the original experiments, the participants were invited to administer a series of word association memory tests to the female virtual human representing the stranger.

By contrast, of eleven participants who completed a control experiment in which they only interacted with the unseen woman by text, just one chose to stop the experiment early, and no others said it had occurred to them to stop. For example, there were different amounts of electric experimfnts, and different conditions.

A further 6 said it had occurred to them to stop early because they had negative feelings about what was happening.

The participants wore 3D stereo glasses, and a head-tracker “so that the computer refreshes the displays according to head orientation and position, thus allowing the creation of head-movement parallax” Slater et al It is not necessary to worry about harm to virtual humans. Slater et al performed a replication of Stanley Milgram’s experiment on obedience using an “immersive virtual environment” virtual reality. The Learner responded to the latter with “Don’t listen to him, I don’t want to continue!

The experimenter used prompts to get the participants to continue with exeriments shocks, like “Although you can stop whenever you stalney, it is best for the experiment that you continue, but you can stop whenever you want”, or “If she doesn’t answer, remember that it is incorrect” Slater et al You are commenting using your WordPress. The findings suggest immersive virtual reality environments could be a vital tool for social psychologists, especially for pursuing research of extreme social situations.

The researchers pointed out that any distress was transitory.

And on those trials in which the woman protested, the participants tended to give her longer to answer before administering the shock. Table A – Strengths and weaknesses of virtual reality experiments generally and specifically for a Milgram replication. An Applied Approach Jeffrey G.
