Wie das Gehirn "Wirklichkeit" konstruiert: Zur by Rainer Bösel

By Rainer Bösel

Wie entscheidet das Gehirn zwischen Realität und Fiktion? Anhand von experimentellen Befunden zeigt dieser Band, wie einzelne Regionen des Stirnhirns bei der Fantasieproduktion, bei der Beurteilung des Realitätsgehalts und bei spekulativen Weiterführungen des unmittelbar Wahrgenommenen aktiv werden. So wird erkennbar, dass das Stirnhirn nicht nur an intellektuellen und sozio-emotionalen Funktionen beteiligt ist, sondern auch eine deutende Funktion besitzt. Diese erlaubt es, Erwartungen aufzubauen, in den Kategorien "Als-ob" und "Was-wäre-wenn" zu denken, sowie metaphysische Extrapolationen vorzunehmen. Auswahl und Zusammenstellung der Befunde können einmal mehr deutlich machen, wo sich neuropsychologische und philosophische Fragen berühren.
