Psychological Scientists Now Reviewing Movies — To Bring Clarity
Mary V. Spiers, professor of psychology (and neuropsychologist) at one of my Alma Maters, Drexel University, has created a brilliant website to clarify the psychological science depicted in the movies.
You must check this out:
I love the review of Finding Nemo. Do you remember Dory, the amnesic sidekick? http://www.neuropsyfi.com/reviews/finding-nemo
For another movie I really enjoyed, Memento, the reviewers point out both the ways in which the movie is accurate in reporting on anterograde amnesia, and inaccurate. http://www.neuropsyfi.com/reviews/memento
The website also has a page devoted to brain science, with information you can actually trust — instead of some of the hyped stuff you might have seen from vendors in the learning field.
