Medical Study: Autism-Vaccine Study Flawed (CNN, 2/3/2010)

This CNN video discusses research on Autism and vaccinations.

The Developing Child (Discovering Psychology Series, 2001) 

"This program introduces examples of cognitive, perceptual, and behavioral development in children. You'll explore the roles of heredity and environment in child development, and children's incremental understanding of such phenomena as object permanence, symbolic reasoning, and perception of visual depth."


Maturing and Aging (Discovering Psychology Series, 2001)

"This program looks at the human life cycle in spans of 20-25 years, and what happens physically and mentally as we age. Popular misconceptions about the elderly are examined, often in contrast to the reality of growing old. Researchers, who are developing mental exercises to improve mental efficiency, explain senile dementia and other effects of aging."


Language Development (Discovering Psychology Series, 2001)

"This program outlines the development of language in children. It highlights linguist Noam Chomsky's theories about the human brain's predisposition to understand language, and then profiles three scientists working on aspects of psycholinguistics."


The Epigenetics of Identical Twins: "Why do the physical characteristics of identical twins diverge as they age? Follow the interaction of the environment and the genome in a pair of twins over time."



TED Talk: "'Babies and young children are like the R&D division of the human species,' says psychologist Alison Gopnik. Her research explores the sophisticated intelligence-gathering and decision-making that babies are really doing when they play."



"Ric Elias had a front-row seat on Flight 1549, the plane that crash-landed in the Hudson River in New York in January 2009. What went through his mind as the doomed plane went down? At TED, he tells his story publicly for the first time."
