This page is complete for 2017.
This lecture describes psychodynamic perspectives on unconscious motivation.
- Psychological priming (Bang Goes the Theory, Youtube, ~6 mins): This video shows three experiments which indicate that, when primed by handling money, people eat more chocolate, are less likely to help others, and can tolerate more pain.
- How your unconscious mind rules your behaviour: Leonard Mlodinow at TEDxReset 2013 (18:45 mins; start at 02:45 mins): This video provides several examples of unconscious perception and decision making from a cognitive neuroscience perspective. Unfortunately the camera work and editing is poor.
