Regards sur la Psychologie Sociale Expérimentale

Regards sur la psychologie sociale expérimentale or “Perspectives on experimental social psychology” is a series of 5 video clips each of which consists of a short film of an experiment and a presentation to explain the following topics: the fundamental attribution error, the failure to assist a person in danger, the effects of a commitment process, the effects of categorisation and the effects of social comparison. The series was created in 2007 by VIDEOSCOP Université Nancy 2, the audio-visual and multimedia research and production department of Université Nancy2, France (

This project targets university students, and particularly those in the field of social psychology. Experiments are the basis of many fundamental concepts in the field of social psychology, and these have been conducted in strict test conditions so the majority of them are only available to social psychology students in texts on paper. This online collection contains five experiments that are reconstructed and recorded. These videos show in particular the methodology used and the subjects’ reactions, thus visualising the concepts to make them easier to understand and remember. Each of the five recorded experiments is linked to a theoretical part, explaining the experiment and creating links with the theoretical concepts that students need to know and learn.
