Neural correlates of thoughts and concepts

#1  Postby seeker » Jan 24, 2014 5:57 pm

Are there studies about the neural correlates of "thinking a thought" or "thinking about a concept"? Are there any empirical regularities (e.g. that different kinds of thoughts or concepts correlate with different kinds of neural events)? What is known about this issue so far?

This study is interesting. A fMRI device is used to reconstruct an image the subject is viewing.
