Thanks to CMU advances in brain imaging technology, we now know how specific concrete objects are coded in the brain.

Now, CMU scientists are applying this knowledge about the neural representations of familiar concepts by teaching people new concepts and watching the new neural representations develop. The research reveals that the brain has a “filing system” that is the same for everyone.
