A new study held by a team from Stanford and Princeton Universities used a 48-minute section of BBC’s Sherlock to show your brain works in the same way as the titular detective. The study showed that when you store and recall memories, your brain activity looks a lot like his.
The group led by Janice Chen, a postdoc in the psychology department at Princeton University, and Yuan Chang Leong, a graduate student studying psychology at Stanford University, picked 22 study volunteers for the study.
