WHAT THEY FOUND 

The study, led by Carnegie Mellon University Professor of Psychology Dr Marcel Just, revealed that to process sentences such as 'The witness shouted during the trial,' the brain uses an alphabet of 42 'meaning components' or 'semantic features' consisting of features such as person, setting size, social interaction and physical action.

Each type of information is processed in a different brain system - which is how the brain also processes the information for objects.

By measuring levels of activation in each brain system, the program can tell what types of thoughts are being contemplated.
(A) Brain regions associated with with four large-scale 'meaning components' or 'semantic factors: People (yellow), places (red), actions and their consequences (blue), and feelings (green). (B) Word cloud associated with each large-scale semantic factor. (C) Semantic factors that correlate with at least one large-scale factor
