An expert in cognitive neuroscience, Howard recently published his book I Think Therefore I Am Wrong which looks at the many ways we can sabotage our thinking through cognitive biases, binary thought, false assumptions and numerous other strategies.

He is also the presenter of the How Not To Think podcast, in which examines how this false reasoning manifests itself in many areas of society through myths, and 'conventional wisdom.'
