were deceived in highly unethical ways, at least by our standards today. However, deception remains an important tool in modern psychological research with human subjects.

a) If understanding the hypothesis being tested will affect or bias the participants’ behavior in ways that will render the entire experiment invalid.
b) When the long-term benefits of the research out-weigh the short-term costs of deceiving the participants, as determined by an Institutional Review Board.
c) If the researcher shares the final results of the study with the deceived participants when they are ultimately published.
