Social influence in televised election debates: a potential distortion of democracy

Colin Davis is Professor of Cognitive Science in the Department of Psychology at Royal Holloway. His principal area of research concerns language processing and how people recognise printed and spoken words. He has forayed more recently into the study of politics and how audiences respond to political debates and this is a talk for a general audience discussing research he and Prof. Amina Memon (also Psychology, RHUL) did about the TV debates in last year’s general election: http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0018154
