Not Quite "Seeing Dead People"

A recent study shows that humans my have a "sixth sense" that can learn over time when you're likely to make a mistake. Basically, the scientists who did the study think you can subconsciously learn when a set of stimuli will lead to making an error, and the part of your brain that's in charge of noticing mistakes will fire off before you act.

This isn't ESP by any stretch; it doesn't even count as "spidey sense". But I do find it amusing that there's a part of my brain that's in charge of nothing other than generating the "aw, shit!" when I make a mistake.

I think mine may be a little overzealous.
