|Psychology presentation sheds light on myths
Published: March 22, 2013.
Dr. Matthew Domico, assistant professor of psychology, spoke about common psychological myths on March 14 as part of the Citizenship Series at Lewis University in Romeoville.
Domico’s presentation titled, “Psychological Myths: What Every Citizen Should Know,” highlighted myths that many citizens hold about human brain function, mid-life crisis, old age and the future. Domico shed light on various studies that falsify myths and encouraged attendees to be cautious of statements that are not supported by research. He stated, “Much of what we believe about psychology simply isn’t true. Scientific research can help us find evidence and support theories that contradict common myths.”
