Ttitle: Searching for the elements of thought: understanding the role of the default mode network in human cognition.

Abstract: The cognitive and affective processes supported by the default mode network remain poorly understood. This talk will consider contemporary views of this network functions as reflecting the process through which cognition and behaviour are enriched by information from memory. Rather than a task negative process, recent work will be described that suggests that the default mode network reflects the process through which multiple different neural systems are bound together to provide an abstract description of the context in which experience unfolds.
