Neuroscientists Can Predict Our Decisions Before Us


In a new study published in Scientific Reports, the participants were asked to select one of two images. After that, the participants' brain activities were monitored and the participants were chosen to choose which image to choose from.

In the study, 14 participants were placed in an fMRI machine. Participants were shown two separate patterns, one with a red horizontal line and the other with a green vertical line. They were given about 20 seconds to make their selection, then they pressed a button to indicate their selection.

Researchers who monitored brain activity during the electoral process identified signs of the participant's choice in four different regions of the brain. The researchers, who followed these signs, were able to predict the selection of the person up to 11 seconds before making a choice.

These findings can give us a clue as to how our mind works. A When we are confronted with two or more options, we also come across unconscious markings of our thoughts, similar to unconscious hallucinations. When deciding what to do, the brain chooses the stronger side of thought. In other words, if a brain activity that we have previously made matches one of our choices, our brain will most likely turn to this option. Iz

Previously, there were studies that could predict the choices of the participants. Similar surveys were able to make predictions 4 and 10 seconds before the elections.

A better understanding of the working structure of our mind can help to develop new forms of personalized communication such as telepathy or our brain. In this way, even the technologies that enable paralyzed people to express their thoughts can be developed. An important aspect of such innovations is that we can make these developments in a conscious way. Because the human wants to open the door of his thoughts according to his own request.
