What causes deja-vu?
« on: 06/08/2013 02:30:02 »
Ed Wilson  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Isn't it because subconscious parts of the mind are constructing the familiar parts of the scene and supplying them more quickly than the unfamiliar parts which have to be worked on more consciously? So you see most of the scene before it is consciously present.

Ed Wilson

What do you think?
