Googling Your Brain

“Researchers
analyzed brain scans of people as the test subjects watched pictures on
a cmputer screen. The images were divided into three categories:
celebrities, places, and everyday objects like tweezers and a pocket
mirror.

Later, without any images and while their brains were
still being scanned, the subjects were asked to recall as many of the
images as they could. The researchers found that the patterns of brain
activity associated with each picture “reinstated” themselves seconds
before the people could verbally recall the memories.

On
average, the time between beginning brain activity associated with the
memory and the subjects verbally stating the memory was about 5.4
seconds.
