Science Listens To The Voices In Our Heads
"But although philosophers have long been interested in the relationship between language and thought, many believed that inner speech lay outside the realms of science. That is now changing, with new experimental designs for encouraging it, interfering with it and neuroimaging it. We are beginning to understand how the experience is created in the brain; its subjective qualities - essentially, what the words 'sound' like; and its role in processes such as self-control and self-awareness."
