Our behaviour is dictated by what the brain observes in the surroundings

A Princeton University study has opined that the brain performs feats of math that make sense of the world. University researchers found that the human brain combines complicated observations from existing surroundings into a simple assessment of the situation which aids our behavior. This process is also flexible enough to account for new information as and when it becomes available. The researchers found that our brains can accurately track the likelihood of several different explanations for what we see around us. They traced these abilities to a region of the brain located just behind our eyes known as the orbito-frontal cortex. First author Stephanie Chan, who earned her doctorate in neuroscience from Princeton in 2016, said the brain keeps track of possibilities in a way that is simpler than a…
