        • Gina Perry's research proves it
          • listened to milgrams tapes of the study many of the participants had doubts about the shocks
            • but Seridan and King did a similar experiment but real shocks were given to a puppy
              • 100% of women and 54% of men gave what they believed to be a fatal shock
                • suggest that Milgram's study was genuine including the effects
