Prof. Cianci - General Psychology - Spring 2019: So You Chose a Brain Myth

Searching for Specific Brain Myths

Choosing search terms for your specific brain myth/misconception.


You've selected a specific brain myth or misconception to research or "fact check." This is a new search. 

Read the title and the description of the misconception/myth carefully. 

Isolate the big ideas that capture the myth/misconception itself. What words or phrases will lead you to more information... in scholarly secondary sources, sources created by authoritative authors?


  • Collect the nouns from the description - names of people, organizations, things, ideas found in the description of the “brain myth”
  • Collect any truly relevant and specific descriptors
