Psychological Experimentation continues to innovate and discover new ways of quantifying and measuring human behavior. The immense significant contribution of experimentation has greatly increased our understanding of ourselves as a specie. In conducting experiments, psychology practitioners must keep in mind that the results and findings of each experiment must be of use and significance to the sciences. In these experiments it is vital that psychology practitioners follow strict ethical standards.
The Ethical Code for psychologist was created and developed by the American Psychological Association. It is the world’s largest association of psychologists with an estimated 150,000 members which includes scientists, educators, clinicians, consultants and students. The code was created to regulate the practice of psychology as an ethically responsible profession.
Experimentation often requires human participants. In conducting the experiments several ethical considerations should be followed. Some of these are informed consent, freedom to decline, prevention of adverse effects from the experiments.. etc. The code of ethics cite several rule to effectively classify and organize the codes by which all psychologist should follow.
Under standard 8 of the code of ethics (Research and Publication) which include:
All these rules are created to protect and defend human dignity. In all experiments no amount of scientific data is equivalent to human dignity. It is the responsibility of all psychologist to promote the care and protection of human dignity. The central core of any ethical code is the human conscience. A psychologist as a human being is not only a scientist who tests and records psychological data but should always follow his conscience in his quest for scientific excellence.

I was very bored a few days ago and I happen to visit mangafox.com I didn’t expect that this boring looking manga would attract my attention but when I started reading it, it was hell a lot than I bargained for!
A modern twist on the concept of vampires, werewolves, zombies and many more monsters set in modern south korea. A vampire lord accidentally enrolled himself in one of the largest university in korea. This manga truly made me laugh. I will surely read it.
