Yes, it is Philip Zimbardo's Stanford Prison Experiment that I was describing. One of my very favourite experiments. I don't know which of you was correct first, you'll have to fight over which one of you gets to go next! [|)]

I am credited with the technology behind a piece of equipment which is in popular use today, although it is not in the design technology that I became famous, but rather in it's practical application.

I would be best described as an explorer and ecologist.

A descendant of the younger brother of Aurthur Guinness (the brewery founder) was of great financial help in my explorations.

It was through him that you might say my future took a 'musical' turn.
