Jason Tangen's research is broadly based on Expertise & Evidence. That is, the perceptual and cognitive changes that occur as we accumulate experiences. Jason has several projects underway on awareness, forensic reasoning, the perception of banknote features, and the flashed face distortion effect. Originally trained in philosophy and cognition, he did a PhD on causal learning at McMaster University in Canada and a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of New South Wales.

Learn how to think better, argue better, and choose better. We will explore everyday thinking: why people believe weird things, how we form and change our opinions, why our expectations skew our judgments, and how we can make better decisions. We discuss and debate topics such as medical diagnosis, paranormal phenomena, placebos, miracles, and more.
