A controversial theory suggests that perception, motor control, memory and other brain functions all depend on comparisons between ongoing actual experiences and the brain’s modeled expectations.

Some neuroscientists favor a predictive coding explanation for how the brain works, in which perception may be thought of as a “controlled hallucination.” This theory emphasizes the brain’s expectations and predictions about reality rather than the direct sensory evidence that the brain receives.
