Imagine that you were asked to conduct a study similar to Milgram’s study of obedience, using adolescent participants. Point out at least one ethical issue present in Milgram’s study and explain what you would do differently to address that issue with your study on adolescent obedience. Would you address that ethical issue differently if you were conducting a study among a particular race or ethnicity? What about with elderly participants? Explain your reasoning.
