Mazes And Our Brains

Researchers at Kyoto University were able to use MRI scanning and mazes to reconstruct what we see in our minds when we navigate from one place to another.

Whenever we're going somewhere, our brains tend to "foresee" or picture the landscape beforehand.

When given instructions before navigating the mazes, sometimes participants would still make mistakes, even though they would already know the directions to find their way out.

They determined this was conclusive proof that subjective belief can override objective reality.

What do you think?

When you solve mazes do you rely more on your instinct to get through them, or logic in your decisions as to which path to take?
