Reconsidering the Role of Brain Images on Judgements of Scientific Reasoning

Public Deposited

Neuroscience research has made many important contributions to the study of the brain and behavior. Perhaps because of these contributions the general public seems to be easily seduced by neuroscientific explanations. Meaning that when a scientific article is paired with a brain image, the information within the article is automatically believed to be more credible. The purpose of this project was to examine how neuroscientific explanations influence how people evaluation scientific information.
