Just how trustworthy is science? This age-old question has taken on a new urgency in recent years, as pandemics and vaccines are at the forefront of the news. Stuart Ritchie, a scientist who challenged an influential psychological experiment and gave name to the "replication crisis" in the field, discusses how human bias, misunderstandings, and outright deception can skew scientific results.
