Storyboard Text

  • The study was advertised in a newspaper recruited male participants from different occupations between the ages of 20-50. All were paid $4.50 for their time and were from the New Haven area.
  • When the participants arrived at YAle University where the study took place, they were introduced to another man, who they thought was a participant but was in fact a confederate working for Milgrim.
  • The two men chose a piece of paper from the experimenter which allocatted them their roles as either teacher or learner. This process was set up so that the confederate would be the learner.
  • The experimenter takes the pair to a room were they are shown the shock machine. The teacher is given a shock of 45V to demonstrate that the machine is real. The learner is strapped to a chair and has electrodes attatched to his arms.
  • The experimenter explains to the teacher how to deliver the questions and to shock the learner for every wrong answer he gives. The test begins.
  • Up until 300V the learner does not protest to the volts, at 300V however he begins to complain nd demand to be let out. The reactions he gives are however a recording played to all teachers.
