Unusual Research in Psychology

I need your help with some
nominations for the most unusual research in psychology. Zimbardo’s prison
experiments or Milgram’s compliance research are both unusual and strange in
their own ways, but quite well known. What about all the other good stuff
that’s crept in under the radar?
My personal favourite was done
by David Rosenhan (left) who faked madness to get into a mental institution.
Why? Just to show how little psychiatrists really knew (or even know?).
