What’s on your mind?


Abby is joined by Associate Professor of Psychology at the College of William & Mary Dr. Peter Vishton for a lesson about the subconscious mind!


Dr. Vishton breaks down the differences between the conscious & subconscious mind and explains their functions and how they control our everyday thoughts and behaviors. He walks listeners through several famous psychological experiments and discusses what they revealed about our decision-making process.


Later, Dr. Vishton explains the ways in which we can consciously influence our thoughts through our actions.
