Description

Subjects from Central Prison in Raleigh, NC, volunteered for an experiment involving an "isolation" experience. The goal of the experiment was to find a treatment that reduces subjects' psychopathic deviant T scores. This score measures a person's need for control or their rebellion against control, and it is part of a commonly used mental health test called the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) test.
