    Myths and Misinformation

    How does misinformation spread and how do we combat it? Psychological science sheds light on the mechanisms underlying misinformation and ‘fake news.’

  • Come Together

    I thought I would write about psychology from the point of view of a provost, since I am in the strange position of being both president of APS and a provost at the same time. I was recently asked by the faculty of my department what I thought of psychology on the campus as a provost, and I told them it wasn't on my screen. This took them aback, but it is true, and probably true for most provosts, but why? Although there are many psychologists on this campus, they are spread among different departments and different colleges. We have two psychology departments here at University of Florida — the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology in the College of Health Professions in the Health Science Center, and the Department of Psychology in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
