Reconsidering the Role of Brain Images on Judgements of Scientific ReasoningPublic 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.

The purpose of this project was to examine how neuroscientific explanations influence how people evaluation scientific information.
