This article tests whether knowledge of how an event is supposed to go can affect your perception of how the event actually happens. They find that yes, it does; but, as I discuss on my blog, the nature of the event they used stacked the odds in favour of this odd result and so doesn’t actually answer the question they’re interested in. It’s a slightly subtle argument, but fundamentally the issue is that they have a serious methodological flaw.
