MRC Keynote: Making Sense of Statistics with Prof Andy Field
Wed 22 March 2017, 16:00 – 17:00 GMT
The MRC DTP keynote series presents Professor Andy Field: Why I Don't Believe Anything in Psychology:
A century ago, unknown to humankind, the Daemons came to Earth and bestowed upon us the power to investigate ourselves. It was called Null Hypothesis Significance Testing. Now they have returned to use this knowledge to destroy us. Our only hope is if I can convince them that all psychological knowledge to date is in fact likely to be wrong.
Andy Field is Professor of Child Psychopathology at the University of Sussex, a successful author of statistics textbooks including 'Discovering Statistics using SPSS/R/SAS: (and sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll)' and has actually published a peer-reviewed paper about the BBC's Dr Who.
Tea, coffee and cake available in the Schuster Building foyer from 3.30pm.
