My interest in learning, memory, and experiments has led to preliminary investigation of the causal effect of narrative structures.  While much of the priming literature as uncovered a differential effect of information structured in "story form", the underlying mechanisms, heterogeneity of the "story effect", and consequences for belief formation and strength remain under-explored.  A working paper reviewing these issues (“Understanding the Effects of Narratives in Experimental and Observational Research”) is available on request.
