Where does the little voice inside your head come from? - ScienceAlert

Often represented in cartoons as the little devils or angels that sit upon our shoulders, our internal monologues aren’t just our conscience speaking to us. Also known as our inner voice or internal speech, this stream of verbal consciousness can take almost any form: from running through a list of things you need to do today, to playing out past conversations, or imagining new ones.

According to Peter Mosely, a psychologist with Durham University in the UK, understanding where inner monologues come from and how they work in healthy people could help us treat those who hear imaginary voices in harmful ways – such as people with schizophrenia or other serious mental disorders.
