A Brain with Multiple Demand Is What Drives Human Reasoning, Scientists Say

Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST)

“Reasoning is an ability that is unique to human cognition. However, despite our advances in neuroimaging techniques, we cannot clearly map the neural regions involved in human reasoning. In a new study, researchers from Korea came up with a new approach to understand the foundations of both inductive and deductive reasoning and identify the major brain areas responsible, paving the way for uncovering the mechanisms of various other cognitive processes.”
