Sign up in your classes! This month's paper is:
Fazio, L., Barber, S., Rajaram, S. Ornstein, P., Marsh, E.. (2013). Creating illusions of knowledge: Learning errors that contradict prior knowledge. . Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, 142, 1-5
The atlantic is the largest Ocean and Franklin invented the light bulb. Seems wrong to you? In their study the researchers investigated to what extent knowledge can be manipulated, even when the participants know better. Does knowledge protect you from making errors? Or can you be made believe things you know to be wrong?
The Sign-up sheet and copies of the article will be available on the bulletin board outside Noyce 1302.
(A copy of the article also can be obtained directly from PsycInfo).
