The human body knows about the upcoming major event, say scientists from Northwestern University (USA). If this is indeed the case, humanity has yet to make fundamental discoveries in the laws of nature.
According to neuroscientist Julie Mossbridzh, which took part in the study, future events can be predicted without any prompting. While this skill is not clearly expressed, it is real. The question is, how it works.
Previous studies have shown that a number of physical responses, including heart rate, pupil dilation and brain activity, can change for 1-10 seconds before a person sees a frightening image (such as a snake crawling). In all these studies, frightening images were mixed with neutral because no hints that will show in the following, was not. However, such an unnatural opening was met with skepticism by many.
To find out whether any assumption base Mossbridzh colleagues studied more than two dozen studies. During the analysis were driven research in which scientists have noticed a bias or error.
The result was confirmed by the effect of "anticipation", which is expressed in the change of physiological arousal for a few seconds before the event. This suggests that the human body unconsciously feels as if something important happens in the near future, even if the person did not yet know.
Scientists do not believe that people can have some mediums or paranormal abilities. On the contrary, the authors suggest that such misgivings are a real physical effect, to obey the laws of nature. Just this effect modern science has not yet understood.
However, many scientists are Mossbridzh conclusions and her colleagues were skeptical. Rufin VanRullen of the Center for Brain Research and knowledge at the University of California at San Diego sure that even the correctness of statistical methods used in the study does not imply the existence of foreboding. Kyle Mathewson Elliot of the University of Illinois, believes the research could be unintentionally biased. These scientists know of dozens of studies that showed no corresponding relationship, and, therefore, remain unpublished.
