PsychCrunch is the podcast from the British Psychological Society’s Research Digest, featuring regular presenters Dr Christian Jarrett and Ginny Smith. Each episode we explore whether the findings from psychological science can make a difference in real life. Just how should we live, according to psychology? We speak to psychologists about their research and whether they apply what they’ve discovered in their own lives.
Our sponsors Routledge Psychology are giving PsychCrunch listeners the chance to discover even more ground-breaking research: free access to 25 articles of your choosing from their range of Behavioral Sciences journals.
Listen to our latest bonus episode on what it’s like to have no mind’s eye:
Ella Rhodes, journalist for The Psychologist magazine, delves into the growing body of research exploring aphantasia – a condition she has personal experience of. While most people can see images formed in their minds, people with aphantasia draw a blank – what might this mean for autobiographical memory, face perception and imagination?
