Child Psychiatrist Dr. Lauretta Bender Performed Electroshock And LSD Experiments On Over 100 Children At Two Hospitals In New York

Bender conducted electroshock experiments on over 100 children, from the 1940s to 1960s. The experiments were conducted at the Bellevue Hospital in New York City and were done to see if electroshock treatments (ECT), were a way to cure ‘autistic schizophrenia’ in children.

One child, following five electroshock sessions, become nearly catatonic.

Lauretta Bender administered electroconvulsive experiments on children ranging from 3 to 12 years of age.

In 1960 Bender also started to experiment with LSD on children within the Children’s Unit at Creedmoor State Hospital in Queens, New York.

She was believed by many to be a highly respected child neuropsychiatrist.

  1. Who need the Milgram shock experiments when we have real doctors?

  2. How horrible. At least she did not conduct lobotomies. Incidentally LSD is all the rage for mental health these days so in that respect perhaps she was not all bad. I’m trying magic mushrooms.

    I think the particular shock is that these experiments were carried out on innocent children without their consent.


  3. Talk about child abuse! WOW! Makes me angry!!
