What is thought?


Question asked by: mtalaisa

Asked on: 16 Mar 2010

This is one of the processes that occurs in the mind.

Quite how it works we don't know but scientists now believe it is to do with processes that occur in the brain, that is physical processes or the chemical reactions and these are manifested through changes to neurons and which ones fire, the order they fire in, the timing they fire, where in the brain they fire and so on.

Somehow in a way we don't understand these patterns and structures give rise to the phenomenon of thought which is an essential part of human consciousness.
