Are we wrongly telling our participants that they don't get taxed?

I'm trying to find information about taxes and volunteer paid experimental (non-clinical) studies. I work in a lab, and one of our participants told us a week ago that if a study pays (the volunteer) over a certain amount, it gets taxed. Can anyone tell me if this is true and give me an official link? We're in Philadelphia, PA, USA. I can provide any other relevant information you need. Thanks!

What was this video I was shown during an experiment?

When I was in college, probably in 1995 or 96, I was shown two short videos as part of an experiment that a graduate student in linguistics was conducting and then asked to describe the events in each. I was later told that the first video was from a well-known psychology experiment and was shown to subjects as a control. The experiment was about my reaction to the second video. Ever since then I've been wondering about that first video. [more inside]

Looking for help programming a flash game to do a psychology study

I'm a social psychologist looking for some advice about where to find a programmer to write what would basically be a very simple flash-type game. The game itself would require some simple user-interactiveness (e.g. selecting options), a fairly low level of graphics (maybe not stick figures, but nothing too artsy), and the ability to collect and store user data. Any suggestions? [more inside]

Reality of the Stanford Prison Experiment

Everytime I read about the Stanford Prison Experiment, I become skeptical. I can believe the kinds of things that are described happened, I just can't believe they happened so fast. Is there any evidence things didn't happen as described, that the happenings were exaggerated?
