Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Is what I see, what I imagine? Study finds neural overlap between vision and imagination

(Medical University of South Carolina) In Current Biology, Medical University of South Carolina researchers report the results of a study using artificial intelligence and human brain studies to compare brain areas involved in mental imagery and vision. Their findings suggest that mental imagery and vision are similar, but that low-level visual areas are activated in a less precise manner with mental imagery. This suggests that the brain is more tuned and sensitive to what it sees than what it imagines.
