The Lying Brain

The talk went well!  It was bizarre, being the one in front of the crowd and being able to answer all the questions.  Of course, much of the time the answer was “I don’t know, but let me speculate based on this study I kind of remember” – but still, it was a lot of fun!

For those of you who couldn’t make it, here’s a list of sources, and a link to the slides, as well as the opening monologue that I typed up.  Someone also took video – when I get in touch with them, I’ll put it up here. I’ll probably clean up this post several times, but I wanted all of this info up so people could look at it and read sources for themselves.

Slides: (it’s a .odf, hosted on Google Docs. you’ll need open office to see it until I convert it to .ppt and put that up – soon!)

Opening: (again .odf on Google Docs. I changed what I said during the talk, but the good stuff is all there.)

Sources & Explanations:

If you’re interested in more, I recommend picking up Quirkology (by Richard Wiseman) and Mistakes Were Made: But Not By Me (by Carol Tavris & Elliot Aronson).

If you have any questions, by the way, please leave them in the comments or email me!
