On September 20, 2013 by Grad Forum

alex_brain_research_thumbnailDartmouth researchers have discovered new information about how and where imagination occurs in the human brain. Alexander Schlegel, a graduate student in psychological and brain sciences, recently led a study that focused on how the brain manipulates mental images.

The researchers found that imagination occurs through a neural network or “mental workspace” in the brain and published their findings on the website of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences earlier this week.
