The spooky science behind Ouija boards

The Toronto Star featured research by Ronald Rensink and his colleagues at UBC’s visual cognition lab about our unconscious minds and how it relates to the way we use Ouija boards.

“There’s this new wave of research that shows we have this inner zombie … our conscious mind gives it commands,” Rensink said. “You might say, let’s go get a coffee, and your inner zombie just goes and does it while you daydream or whatever.”
