In this program, host Michael Mosley provides an illustrated history of some of the most notorious psychology experiments ever conducted in science’s attempt to explore behavior, brainwashing, and free will. The survey includes Ivan Pavlov, his famous dogs, and his less-famous test trials on children; the CIA’s MK-ULTRA project, in which LSD was given to unsuspecting test subjects; and Robert Heath’s experimental psychosurgery on African-American subjects. Mosley also talks with B. F. Skinner’s daughter; a man who participated in Stanley Milgram’s obedience experiments; and a survivor of William Sargant’s electroshock therapy. Under the guidance of controversial psychiatrist David Nutt, Mosley even ingests psilocybin to explore its potential in treating mental illness.
