How a thought travels through the brain

Researchers from UC Berkeley attempted to track the movement of a thought in the brain and showed that prefrontal cortex, evolutionarily the most advanced part of the brain coordinates this brain activity. Scientists used the technique of Electrocorticography (ECoG) which records from the outermost layers of the brain where most of this activity takes place. For difficult tasks, the brain takes some time to respond and the prefrontal cortex also recruits other brain regions. This results in the transformation of input perceptions into physical actions which is extremely important for flexible behaviour.
