Certainly, it has happened that you know something you put on your hand to save a glass just before it starts moving or you know what to answer a question that has not yet been formulated. They seem divinatory physicians, but in reality they have to do with the nature of the brain and science has an explanation.
In our mind, two "bells" work to help us make decisions; one is based on rhythm and the other on memories; By combining the experience of both, we managed to anticipate some simple and almost immediate issues.
This is explained by a study by the University of California Berkley that has observed neural networks of these two systems that work differentiated from the brain and not in the same system as believed to date.
The results published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences offer a new theory of how human brain calculates when making a move. "These brain systems enable us to not only exist right now, but also to actively anticipate the future," explains Richard Ivry, neuroscience at the University of California in Berkeley.
In fact, it is the same system that can be responsible for the known dejavu because our mind thinks of a fraction of a second before it happens and therefore we believe we are already living it.
Has it happened to you?
