An excerpt from the article:
The ability to remember the past and imagine the future can
significantly affect a person's decisions in life. Scientists refer to
the brain’s ability to think about the past, present, and future as
"chronesthesia," or mental time travel, although little is known about
which parts of the brain are responsible for these conscious
experiences. In a new study, researchers have used functional magnetic
resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate the neural correlates of
mental time travel and better understand the nature of the mental time
in which the metaphorical "travel" occurs.
