The Wandering


The neural basis and cognitive functions of various spontaneous thought processes, particularly mind-wandering, are increasingly being investigated. Although strong links have been drawn between the occurrence of spontaneous thought processes and activation in brain regions comprising the default mode network (DMN), spontaneous thought also appears to recruit other, non-DMN regions just as consistently. Here we present the first quantitative meta-analysis of neuroimaging studies of spontaneous thought and mind-wandering in order to address the question of their neural correlates. Examining 24 functional neuroimaging studies of spontaneous thought processes, we conducted a meta-analysis using activation likelihood estimation (ALE). A number of key DMN areas showed consistent recruitment across studies, including medial prefrontal cortex, posterior cingulate cortex, medial temporal lobe, and bilateral inferior parietal lobule. Numerous non-DMN regions, however, were also consistently recruited, including rostrolateral prefrontal cortex, dorsal anterior cingulate cortex, insula, temporopolar cortex, secondary somatosensory cortex, and lingual gyrus. These meta-analytic results indicate that DMN activation alone is insufficient to adequately capture the neural basis of spontaneous thought; frontoparietal control network areas, and other non-DMN regions, appear to be equally central. We conclude that further progress in the cognitive and clinical neuroscience of spontaneous thought will therefore require a re-balancing of our view of the contributions of various regions and networks throughout the brain, and beyond the DMN.




the wandering



Hello oh great one(the writer of the wandering inn), I really just wanna say thank you for bringing my mind out of the cesspit that has plagued me since my military time. After reading your work I have rediscovered what empathy is again. This wonderfully written tale has taken all of us readers through a journey of emotions and ambitions reflected in our daily lives both small and large. Your work has taught us how to be better towards each other in gestures small and large. Please continue on your own self-journey through writing to re-discover how we as a species can help one other and beyond to better. :)


Just wanted to let you know, there have been problems purchasing the wandering inn books on audible the last couple of weeks. All other books on audible seems to be working but not the wandering inn series, Audbible techs guys needed to escalate the issue and add the book manually when i contacted the support. (Book 3 last week, and book 4 this week).So it the sales are suddenly down, this is probably why!!


Have you ever considered turning the wandering inn into touchable books? I listen and re-listen to the audiobooks regularly, and know there are ebook. but I would LOVE to have something tangible, something to add to my bookcases. Please please please give it some thought!!


An artist book has been conceived as an organically integral part of the project. The book conceptually mirrors the installation in the galleries and is comprised of a photo essay by Chang detailing her travels to the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of Western China, the site of the wandering lake, and other aquatic locations, along with selected excerpts from the aforementioned literatures and other sources in relevant topics written by authors including Jill Casid, Herman Melville and Alice Walker. The book is co-published with Dancing Foxes Press, an independent publishing platform whose projects render ideas that emerge from the minds of artists, writers, and scholars, and are often driven by content and collaboration.


On this occasion, Audemars Piguet collaborated with the French artist Ugo Gattoni who developed an original, colourful and imaginative universe to echo the contemporary design of this timepiece and the mysterious technicality of the wandering time display.


Invented in the 17th century, wandering hours are a type of horological complication that display the hours using a system of satellites that gravitate along a minute scale arranged in the form of an arc. This aesthetic presentation of the hours and minutes brings a certain mystique to the reading of time.


Invented in 1655 thanks to a request by Pope Alexander VII, who suffered from insomnia that was exacerbated by the ticking of his clock, the wandering hours complication was rediscovered by Audemars Piguet in 1991 and combines history, technical challenges, design and poetry.


Subjects could choose from 22 general activities, such as walking, eating, shopping, and watching television. On average, respondents reported that their minds were wandering 46.9 percent of time, and no less than 30 percent of the time during every activity except making love.


ERIK VILLARD: And say, you know, "What type of message was most effective on you?" And so we have some basic data, but like in terms of the wandering soul in particular, that messaging, we're still not entirely sure how successful that was. 041b061a72
