How much of what you think about your brain is actually wrong? In this whistlestop tour of dis-proved science, Ben Ambridge walks through 10 popular ideas about psychology that have been proven wrong — and uncovers a few surprising truths about how our brains really work..
We hear anywhere from 10 to 200 lies a day.
And although we’ve spent much of our history coming up with ways to detect these lies by tracking physiological changes in their tellers, these methods have proved unreliable. Is there a more direct approach?
Noah Zandan uses some famous examples of lying to illustrate how we might use communications science to analyze the lies themselves.
NLP has an interesting pedigree.
One of the leading motivational speakers is, perhaps, Tony Robbins or Waking the Giant Within Fame. His seminars have huge followings and his approaches have been praised and criticised in almost equal measure.
Here's a chance to see him working, albeit in front of an audience, with an NLP based coaching technique....
Its the story of Lyndsey, a lady who had been traumatised through a severe gambling addiction.
And although she had been free of this addiction for 12months... you can see in her physical appearance and in the language she uses... that she was weighed down by the burden of debt that her addiction had left her with. In short, she was desperate and could see no way out.
But through Tony's unique brand of unique NLP training, skills and experience an instant transformation takes place.
Tony manages to transform Lyndsey's reason for working.
Initially Lynsey described her reason for working (while crying) as the means for paying off her huge mountain of debts.
Within a minute the reason for work had changed (within less than a minute) and Lynsdey was smiling while stating what satisfaction she got from her work.
All from creating the metaphor of a bag... and getting rid of it by shooting it to the sun.
And just look at Lyndsey's physical and emotional transformation at the end of the video

Here's a really interesting question.

In this lecture, best-selling author Steven Pinker introduces you to linguistics, the evolution of spoken language, and the debate over the existence of an innate universal grammar.
He also explores why language is such a fundamental part of social relationships, human biology, and human evolution. Finally, Pinker touches on the wide variety of applications for linguistics, from improving how we teach reading and writing to how we interpret law, politics, and literature.

Russell Foster is a circadian neuroscientist: He studies the sleep cycles of the brain.
And he asks: What do we know about sleep?
Not a lot, it turns out, for something we do with one-third of our lives. In this talk, Foster shares three popular theories about why we sleep, busts some myths about how much sleep we need at different ages -- and hints at some bold new uses of sleep as a predictor of mental health.

According to neuroscientist Anil Seth, we're all hallucinating all the time; when we agree about our hallucinations, we call it "reality."
Join Seth for a delightfully disorienting talk that may leave you questioning the very nature of your existence in this TedTalk.
