Talk: Failing Upward: Failure in (Psychological and Neuro) Science and the Journal of Trial and Error

Abstract: As scientists, we are trained to think our job is to report  groundbreaking discoveries that change our understanding of Nature (capital-N). In practice however, our job is one of trial and error;  failing again and again; gaining knowledge of what is not to eventually  learn what is. Despite the central role failure plays in the scientific  process, there remains a stark gap between what is researched and what  is published. In this talk, I detail the consequences of this gap on  psychology and neuroscience and introduce the Journal of Trial and Error  as a way to close this gap. 

Speaker: Sean Devine is a PhD candidate in Psychology at McGill University in  Montreal, Canada. They study cognitive effort and decision-making. They  are also the Editor of Psychology for the Journal of Trial and Error and  an advocate for the reflection and discussion about failure in  science.
