Dishonest deeds lead to ‘cheater’s high,’ as long as no one gets hurt, study finds” is the title of an article appearing earlier this month in the online Medical Xpress. The article discusses implications of new research appearing in the American Psychological Association’s Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

According to the Medical Xpress article:
