Distinct Regions of the Medial Prefrontal Cortex Are Associated with Self-referential Processing and Perspective Taking
TLDR
Findings show that self-referential processing and perspective taking recruit distinct regions of the MPFC and suggest that the left dorsal MPFC may be involved in decoupling one's own from other people's perspectives on the self. Expand
Mind-wandering: phenomenology and function as assessed with a novel experience sampling method.
TLDR
A novel experience sampling method was designed which permitted to isolate SITUTs from other kinds of distractions to support the view that an important function of mind-wandering relates to the anticipation and planning of the future. Expand
Self-referential reflective activity and its relationship with rest: a PET study
TLDR
It is suggested that the VMPFC is crucial for representing knowledge pertaining to the self and that this is an important function of the resting state. Expand
Neural Correlates of Ongoing Conscious Experience: Both Task-Unrelatedness and Stimulus-Independence Are Related to Default Network Activity
TLDR
Results suggest that midline DMN regions underlie cognitive processes that are active during both internal thoughts and external unfocused attention and strengthen the view that the DMN can be fractionated into different subcomponents and reveal the necessity to consider both the stimulus-dependent and the task-related dimensions of conscious experiences when studying the possible functional roles of theDMN.

The Iowa Gambling Task in fMRI images
TLDR
Decision‐making during the Iowa Gambling Task was associated with activity in several brain regions in a group of healthy individuals, consistent with the neural circuitry hypothesized to underlie somatic marker activation and decision‐making. Expand
Remembering the past and imagining the future in schizophrenia.
TLDR
Investigation of schizophrenic patients' ability to generate specific mental images of their personal past and future showed that patients recalled fewer specific past events than did healthy controls and were even more impaired in generating specific future events. Expand
Phenomenal characteristics associated with projecting oneself back into the past and forward into the future: Influence of valence and temporal distance
TLDR
It is suggested that the way the authors both remember their past and imagine their future is constrained by their current goals. Expand
PHENOMENAL CHARACTERISTICS OF AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL MEMORIES FOR EMOTIONAL AND NEUTRAL EVENTS IN OLDER AND YOUNGER ADULTS
TLDR
The results suggest that the effect of emotion on phenomenal characteristics of autobiographical memories is similar in younger and older adults, but that older adults tend to reappraise negative events in a more positive light than younger adults. Expand
Frequency, characteristics and functions of future‐oriented thoughts in daily life
Despite the growing interest in future-oriented cognition in various areas of psychology, there is still little empirical data regarding the occurrence and nature of future-oriented thoughts in dailyExpand
The Locus Ceruleus Is Involved in the Successful Retrieval of Emotional Memories in Humans
TLDR
The retrieval of neutral faces encoded in emotional or neutral contexts was analyzed and the restoration of a central arousal similar to encoding takes part in the successful retrieval ofneutral events learned in an emotional context. Expand
