Misinformation and the Brain

Lecture no. 3 from the course: Fighting Misinformation: Digital Media Literacy

Misinformation and the Brain

Taught by Professor Tara Susman-Pena and 2 others | 23 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Humans often fail to critically evaluate the world around us. Take a close look at the machinations of misinformation, and how it can be used in conjunction with our natural cognitive biases to lead us astray. Learn about the role of reality distortion, the “Barnum effect,” selective recall, and confirmation bias in misinformation, and how techniques like “Label to Disable” and “Care before You Share” can help.
