Article of the Week
Our Brains Reveal Our Choices Before We're Even Aware of Them
A recent study from researchers at the University of New South Wales shows that our brain can determine our choices over 10 seconds before we are consciously aware of them. By asking individuals to choose between two different colored patterns, the researchers were able to use an fMRI machine to predict their choices. This study is the first to capture our understanding of involuntary visual thoughts and how they can influence the imagery we voluntary visualize.
