Can I introduce new literature in my discussion - i.e. which hasn't been mentioned in the introduction? I ask this because my lecturer has asked us to test intuitive assumptions I have found to have been 'proven' wrong by others.

From what I know - in the intro we are supposed to cite previous studies to provide evidence for why hypotheses are made... I really can't do this because everything I've found goes against the hypotheses he's supplied us with.

So - can I cite new literature in the discussion?

Of course you can. Remember that citations are there to support your argument and so you use them where neccessary rather than just listing them all at the start.
