Mind changers

Over the last few years the BBC has broadcast an excellent series on research studies that have changed our understanding of the human mind, presented by Claudia Hammond (some of you may have heard her speak at a recent student conference in London). The BBC has now decided to make them all available for download here. Topics covered include Bandura’s Bobo doll study, Rosenhan’s Pseudo-patient study, Kohlberg’s Heinz dilemma, The Hawthorne effect, Mary Ainsworth’s research. In total there are 15 programmes each 28 minutes in length. On Sunday 17 April there is a new series starting with a programme on Elizabeth Loftus and Eyewitness Testimony.
