Press Release: Researchers Map How the Brain Focuses to Anticipate Touch
The act of anticipation might seem emotional, but inside your brain, it’s something much different. It’s an exercise in focus. To that end, Temple University Psychology Professor Peter Marshall and a team of researchers from the University of Washington have discovered a new method for showing how a child’s brain anticipates touch. Their findings, which produced a colored “scalp map,” show brain activity during anticipation and were published in the November issue of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience.
