Milgram Obedience Experiments and Asch Conformity

Hello I am in need of help.
I need to analyze the advantages and consequences of using deception in research as applied to the Milgram Obedience Experiments and Asch Conformity. Then, using the Milgram Obedience Experiment, evaluate how the study or the finding on obedience to authority might have been different had deception not been used at all. Then state your thoughts on whether or not studies like Milgram's should be conducted and why and include in the summary how current APA ethical standards apply to the Milgram's Experiment and the use of deception in social psychology.

Similarly, define and discuss the concept of conformity and the use of deception within the Asch (1956) studies. Evaluate the ethical considerations and how or if this study should be conducted, and if this study could be redesigned today to conform to the current APA standards and if so how?

Finally, locate a peer reviewed article published in the last five years that discusses a research study in what compliance was the topic of focus and based on the analysis of the research studies into obedience, conformity and compliance do you believe these three concepts exist on the same continuum? Explain and conclude the assessment on ay ethical issue that may arise from studying these issues today.

Three additional peer reviewed references needed.
