Scientists from the University of California at Berkeley (USA) have discovered that the brain uses two "hours" for the time of predictions found in different parts of the body.
This study shows that "there are two different ways" in which these brain systems "allow us not only to exist", but also "actively anticipate the future," said the specialist, who led the study, Assaf Breska, and informs Science Daily website.
Thus, one of the internal mechanisms based on past experience and is connected with the cerebellum and the other depends on the pace and connected to the basal ganglia.
Rhythm-system "is sensitive to occasional events like that, with 39 & # is inherent for speech and music". In addition, a "system allows time intervals sensitive patterns, even in the absence of rhythmic signal most general expectation".
An example of the first situation would be to move the body before it sounds the first note of music, which we expect, while the second will illustrate the fact, stepping on the accelerator pedal for a split second before he changes the traffic light,
These findings will challenge the idea that a single system of the brain handles all our temporal needs, and I would suggest that if one of these "nervous" hours fails, another can take over their tasks.
