Stanford Prison Experiment: The Stanford Prison Experiment was a 1971 psychological study led by Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University. It simulated a prison environment, randomly assigning college students roles as guards or prisoners. The experiment demonstrated the powerful influence of situational factors and social roles on behavior, as participants quickly adopted abusive or submissive behaviors. It raised ethical concerns and highlighted the impact of authority and dehumanization. See also Social behavior, Power, Authority, Situations, Behavior, Group behavior.
