Why Do Our Brains Love Fake News? | Above the Noise

Ever have an argument with someone, and no matter how many facts you provide, you just can’t get that person to see it your way? One big reason for this is cognitive bias, which is a limitation in our thinking that can cause flaws in our judgement. Confirmation bias is a specific type of cognitive bias that motivates us to seek out information we already believe and ignore or minimize facts that threaten what we believe. Studies show that when people are presented with facts that contradict what they believe, the parts of the brain that control reason and rationality go inactive. But, the parts of the brain that process emotion light up like the Fourth of July. In this video, host Myles Bess dives into the research and offers some tips to combat confirmation bias. This resource is part of the News and Media Literacy Collection.

Learn about the high risk fetal condition known as Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome in this clip from the series TWICE BORN. Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome is a condition in which identical twins share a placenta and pass the mother's blood unevenly between them, causing one twin to become too large and the other to become too small. The large baby has to pump too much blood for its heart to keep up with, while the small twin becomes too small to properly develop. As a result, both twins can die suddenly in utero. When diagnosed early, fetal surgeons may be able to intervene and correct the condition.

Learn how fetal surgeons can help repair a birth defect of the spine known as Spina Bifida in this clip from the series TWICE BORN. Spina bifida is a condition in which a hole in the spinal column leaves a section of the spinal cord and spinal nerves exposed through an opening in an unborn baby's back. When expectant mothers and the fetus meet the criteria, surgeons can operate about halfway through the pregnancy to close the hole and minimize the nerve damage. By repairing the hole, doctors hope to improve the quality of the child's life with greater mobility and independence.
