My last hope to be given a million dollars - dashed!

I was telling our lunch guests about a fantasy of mine, to be a subject in a psychological experiment: I want someone to determine how I would be affected by the gift of a very large sum of money. A guest dashed my hopes:
“You’ll be in the control group!” (Control Group???)
“You’ll be given placebo dollars!” (Placebo dollars?????)

“Placebo Dollars” is a very strange concept. Think about it…
