This is an issue in controlled experiments in which those in the control group become resentful of not receiving the experimental treatment. They may become angry, depressed, uncooperative, or non-compliant. This may lead to significant systematic differences in the outcome of the control group, obscuring the results of the study and threatening their validity.
