Hank: Hi! I'm Hank Green, and if you're watching this, you're probably a big fan of SciShow. Which means you probably share our insatiable curiosity about the universe and the science that makes it tick. Now, we want to dive a little deeper into what makes us tick: our brains. So we’re launching a brand-new channel that was chosen by our Patreon Patrons: SciShow Psychology! And I am, of course, going to need some help tackling the mysteries of the human mind.

Brit: Which is where I come in. I'm Brit Garner, and I'll be hosting SciShow Psych with Hank! Ever wondered if you can really trust that your memories are accurate? Or why reading Harry Potter made you want to be a wizard? What about all those personality tests? Does being an INTJ actually mean anything more than being a Gemini?

H: Psychology tends to get sensationalized or over-generalized, so we're looking forward to getting down to the real, hardcore, peer-reviewed science that you know and love on SciShow. But brains are also just super complicated and weird. So for some questions, researchers don't have the answer yet, and we won’t either. And that's okay. Starting on March 6th, we’ll be uploading two episodes every week over at youtube.com/scishowpsych. Head on over and subscribe!
