Watch Daniel Levitin, Neuroscientist and New York Times bestselling author, in our latest RSA Spotlight - the edits which take you straight to the heart of the event!

We are bombarded each day with bad data, half-truths, and even outright lies in amongst the facts. But how can we know if we are being sold mistruths? Neuroscientist and New York Times bestselling author Daniel Levitin explains that although we may expect newspapers, the government and Wikipedia to be factually correct, so often aren’t. He encourages us to think critically about the words and numbers we encounter and discourages us from passively accepting information, repeating it, and making decisions based on it.
