Toward a model-based cognitive neuroscience of mind wandering
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-12-03)
People often ‘‘mind wander” during everyday tasks, temporarily losing track of time, place, or current task goals. In laboratory-based tasks, mind wandering is often associated with performance decrements in behavioral variables and changes in neural recordings. Such empirical associations provide descriptive accounts of mind wandering – howit affects ongoing task performance – but fail to ...
On the efficiency of neurally-informed cognitive models to identify latent cognitive states
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-07-25)
Psychological theory is advanced through empirical tests of predictions derived from quantitative cognitive models. As cognitive models are developed and extended, they tend to increase in complexity–leading to more precise predictions–which places concomitant demands on the behavioral data used to discriminate between candidate theories. To aid discrimination between cognitive models and, more ...
Probing the neural signature of mind wandering with simultaneous fMRI-EEG and pupillometry
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-10-01)
Mind wandering reflects the shift in attentional focus from task-related cognition driven by external stimuli toward self-generated and internally-oriented thought processes. Although such task-unrelated thoughts (TUTs) are pervasive and detrimental to task performance, their underlying neural mechanisms are only modestly understood. To investigate TUTs with high spatial and temporal precision, we ...
