Washington: What we imagine hearing can change what we actually see, and what we imagine seeing can change what we actually hear, according to a new study.A study from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden shows, that our imagination may affect how we experience the world more than we perhaps think. What we imagine hearing or seeing "in our head" can change our actual perception.The study sheds new light on a classic question in psychology and neuroscience - about how our brains combine information from the different senses."We often think about the things we imagine and the things we perceive as being clearly dissociable," says Christopher Berger, doctoral student at the Department of Neuroscience and lead author of the study. "However, what this study shows is that our imagination of a sound or a shape changes how we perceive the world around us in the same way actually hearing that sound or seeing that shape does."
