A scientific experiment that is considered unethical was the psychology test of Little Albert by John Watson. This experiment wanted to prove that humans are not born with any fear rather than loud noises. In this experiment Watson made that a little boy called Albert was afraid of fuzzy white objects. What makes the experiment deeply unethical was that the person tested did not have consent of what was going on, and also that Watson could not induct fear into a person, worst a minor, because he did not know what the consequences would bring. Another unethical aspect was that Little Albert did not finish the experiment.
