Stanford neuroscientist: Were now able to eavesdrop on the brain in real life
From: One World Chronicle
Neuroscientists at Stanford University have made a major breakthrough with regards to how the human brain engages in quantitative thought, and some say its opening the door for being able to someday eavesdrop on the minds inner-workings.
A team at Stanfords School of Medicine had their findings published this week in the journal Nature Communications, and their eye-catching result is being considered a big step to understanding how the brain operates, specifically in terms of numbers.
After monitoring the brain waves of three seizure patients, the scientists determined that a particular part of the mind became active when the subjects were asked to solve mathematical equations, but also when quantitative terms such as more than or an extra little bit were spoken during routine discussions.
Bruce Goldman wrote about the study for the Stanford School of Medicine website and said the team of scientists collected the first solid evidence that the pattern of brain activity seen in someone performing a mathematical exercise under experimentally controlled conditions is very similar to that observed when the person engages in quantitative thought in the course of daily life.
According to the scientists who conducted the study, however, it could be the start of something much more.
Were now able to eavesdrop on the brain in real life, Dr. Josef Parvizi, the director of Stanfords Human Intracranial Cognitive Electrophysiology Program and lead scientist behind the studio, said to Goldman.
