Once upon a time I read an article (or perhaps study/paper - I don't know) regarding different brain activity when referring to / thinking about different people:
- Your close people, like family
- Your not-so-close people, like friends or the keeper of the shop you usually go to
- People you don't know like, say, politicians and celebrities
There is a chance that I read just crap from the internet (again) [Edit: I struggled trying to find the article on google but couldn't], but I'd like to know if there is any reliable source for that claim (a peer-reviewed-and-not-yet-dismissed paper, say).
Is there any reliable source (peer-reviewed & non-dismissed research paper - you all understand this matter better than me) regarding that topic?
