Prof. Aparna Vajpayee, Dr Uma Sheokand , Prof. Parag Sanghani
Abstract
Since the prevalence of incorrect information and online fake news is a troubling by-product of the digital age, psychologists need to better understand the cognitive processes that lead people to believe and accept the erroneous information they see online. It affects human cognition by changing a range of cognitive processes involved in that. That in turn have an impact on the metacognitive capacities to observe and evaluate the outside world and consciously or subconsciously mould perception, idea development, attitudes, and thinking in different manner.
