During conscious rest, the mind switches into a state of wandering. Although this rich inner experience occupies a large portion of the time spent awake, how it relates to brain activity has not been well explored. In other words, though goal-directed tasks have been demonstrated to rely on specific regional integration, mind wandering can be characterized by widespread modular segregation. Overall, the present study provides evidence that modulation of spontaneous low-frequency fluctuations in the brain is at least partially explained by spontaneous conscious cognition while at rest.
