Expérience de Milgram

Reconstitution de l'expérience de Milgram (extrait)[1] L’expérimentateur (E) amène le sujet (S) à infliger des chocs électriques à un autre participant, l’apprenant (A), qui est en fait un acteur. La majorité des participants continuent à infliger les prétendus chocs jusqu'au maximum prévu (450 V) en dépit des plaintes de l'acteur. L'expérience de Milgram est une expérience de psychologie réalisée entre 1960 et 1963 par le psychologue américain Stanley Milgram.

Cette expérience cherchait à évaluer le degré d'obéissance d'un individu devant une autorité qu'il juge légitime et à analyser le processus de soumission à l'autorité, notamment quand elle induit des actions qui posent des problèmes de conscience au sujet. Les résultats ont suscité beaucoup de commentaires dans l’opinion publique, la méthode utilisée ayant entraîné critiques et controverses chez plusieurs psychologues et philosophes des sciences.

For Better Social Skills, Scientists Recommend a Little Chekhov

Say you are getting ready for a blind date or a job interview. What should you do? Besides shower and shave, of course, it turns out you should read — but not just anything. Something by Chekhov or Alice Munro will help you navigate new social territory better than a potboiler by Danielle Steel. That is the conclusion of a study published Thursday in the journal Science. The researchers say the reason is that literary fiction often leaves more to the imagination, encouraging readers to make inferences about characters and be sensitive to emotional nuance and complexity. “This is why I love science,” Louise Erdrich, whose novel “The Round House” was used in one of the experiments, wrote in an e-mail. “Thank God the research didn’t find that novels increased tooth decay or blocked up your arteries,” she added.

Novel Finding: Reading Literary Fiction Improves Empathy

Researchers at The New School in New York City have found evidence that literary fiction improves a reader’s capacity to understand what others are thinking and feeling. Emanuele Castano, a social psychologist, along with PhD candidate David Kidd conducted five studies in which they divided a varying number of participants (ranging from 86 to 356) and gave them different reading assignments: excerpts from genre (or popular) fiction, literary fiction, nonfiction or nothing. After they finished the excerpts the participants took a test that measured their ability to infer and understand other people’s thoughts and emotions. The researchers found, to their surprise, a significant difference between the literary- and genre-fiction readers. When study participants read non-fiction or nothing, their results were unimpressive.

Christian Keysers performs an fMRI scanEUREKALERT, ROYAL NETHERLANDS ACADEMY OF ARTS AND SCIENCES Psychopathy is a disorder characterized by extreme heartlessness toward other people. However, according to a study published today (July 25) in the journal Brain, psychopathic criminals may be able to muster some empathy when asked to imagine themselves in another person’s situation. “The predominant notion had been that they are callous individuals, unable to feel emotions themselves and therefore unable to feel emotions in others,” coauthor Christian Keysers of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands told BBC News. “Our work shows it’s not that simple.

Worried Sick. Something strange was happening in New Zealand.

Worried Sick

In the fall of 2007, pharmacies across the country had begun dispensing a new formulation of Eltroxin—the only thyroid hormone replacement drug approved and paid for by the government and used by tens of thousands of New Zealanders since 1973. Within months, reports of side effects began trickling in to the government’s health-care monitoring agency. These included known side effects of the drug, such as lethargy, joint pain, and depression, as well as symptoms not normally associated with the drug or disease, including eye pain, itching, and nausea. Then, the following summer, the floodgates opened: in the 18 months following the release of the new tablets, the rate of Eltroxin adverse event reporting rose nearly 2,000-fold.1 The strange thing was, the active ingredient in the drug, thyroxine, was exactly the same.

So why were people getting sick? “Nocebo” (meaning “I shall harm”) is the dastardly sibling of placebo (“I shall please”).
