Abstract:
S. J. Gilbert, I. Dumontheil, J. S. Simons, C. D. Frith, P. W. Burgess suggest that activity in the default network may be due to the emergence of stimulus-oriented rather than stimulus-independent thought. Although both kinds of thought likely emerge during familiar tasks, we argue—and report data suggesting—that stimulus-independent thought dominates unconstrained cognitive periods.
