Navy Physician Dr.Thomas Narut's doctoral thesis was on whether certain films could provoke anxiety and whether forcing a man to do tasks irrelevant to the film while watching it might help him to cope with the anxieties the film provoked.
Later, as per Narut's statements to British clinical psychologist and writer Peter Watson, Narut's work appeared to involve establishing how to induce servicemen to kill under certain condition.
Narut declared that at the Naval Neuropsychiatric Laboratory Center in San Diego, California, men were "given a special type of "Clockwork Orange" training aimed at reducing and eliminating any qualms they had about killing human beings.
