Mr. Hutson uses his Bachelor of Science degree in Cognitive Neuroscience from Brown University and Master’s in Science Writing from MIT to do just that: write about science. For 4 years ending in 2010 the News Editor of the excellent Psychology Today, he has seen his writing published in The New York Times, Wired, Discover, and Popular Mechanics, just to name a few. Mr. Hutson’s recently published book, The 7 Laws of Magical Thinking, describes how evolved cognitive short cuts and biases produce our beliefs in magic and the supernatural. This is among the most interesting questions in cognitive science and the discussion is entered into here in a compelling way that pushes the reader from page to page. Join us!
