How humans struggle to differentiate imagination from reality

Posted by in category: computing

The more vividly a person imagines something, the more likely it is that they believe it’s real, finds a new study by University College London researchers.

The research, published in Nature Communications, involved more than 600 participants who took part in an online experiment, where they were asked to imagine images of alternating black and white lines while looking at a computer screen.

After they imagined a stimulus, participants then had to report how vividly they were able to visualize it.
