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

This CNN video discusses research on Autism and vaccinations. This is a highly debated subject and recently the landmark study which originally found a link between Autism and vaccinations has been retracted. This is a great example of flawed research methods and a good issue to discuss in a child development course.

(Thanks Kelli Vaughn-Johnson via STP Facebook Group, 12/3/2014)

In this short video feminist psychologists discuss research methods. Among the questions raised: How does our choice of methods affect what we can come to know through our research? What are some concerns feminist psychologists have about the way psychological research has traditionally been conducted? Are qualitative methods more 'feminist' than quantitative methods? What makes certain research questions more feminist than others?

Doctor and epidemiologist Ben Goldacre shows us, at high speed, the ways evidence can be distorted, from the blindingly obvious nutrition claims to the very subtle tricks of the pharmaceutical industry."
