Challenging Neuromyths

A neuromyth was described as a “misconception generated by a misunderstanding, a misreading, or a misquoting of facts scientifically established (by brain research) to make a case for the use of brain research in different contexts (OECD, 2002).

Such distortions are frequently proliferated in the media, and while there may be a nugget of truth at their core, they can lead to misinterpretations, wasted time, effort, and money. While negatively affecting people. Worse still, in the case of neuromyths about neurodiversity, they have been shown to increase stigma. 

One of the aims of ANA is to challenge neuromyths when they arise and help increase science informed rigorous understanding of the brain.
