What happens in our brains when we ‘hear’ our own thoughts?

If you’ve ever had an imaginary argument in your head, you may have “heard” two voices at once. Your own inner voice and that of the other person in the quarrel. You may even “hear” the other person’s accent, or the timbre of their voice.

So what’s happening in the brain when that inner monologue is running? How is it that you can “hear” your thoughts?
