Mind Field

Readers interested in exploring psychology and human behavior may enjoy Mind Field. Launched in 2017, this YouTube series examines the psychology of our senses, memories, and feelings by bringing in real subjects to test theories in an attempt to "reveal some of the most mind-blowing, significant, and least-understood aspects of the human psyche." With a mixture of social experiments and scientific explanations, the series has the vibe of a reality show that you can trust – making it a fun and engaging way to learn about complex psychological processes. For example, the "Touch" episode features experiments with pain placebos, testing whether the anticipation of pain causes someone to feel a false sense of pain. And, the "Do You Know Yourself?" episode examines how memories can be manipulated. The show is hosted by Michael Stevens, an educator and entertainer with a background in psychology. As of this write-up, there are 3 seasons totaling 24 episodes. Most episodes are around half an hour in length.
