&NA; The default mode network supports a variety of mental operations such as semantic processing, episodic memory retrieval, mental time travel and mind‐wandering, yet the commonalities between these functions remains unclear. One possibility is that this system supports cognition that is independent of the immediate environment; alternatively or additionally, it might support higher‐order conceptual representations that draw together multiple features. We tested these accounts using a novel… Expand
Modes of operation: A topographic neural gradient supporting stimulus dependent and independent cognition
TLDR
It is demonstrated that shifting decision‐making from perception to memory altered the focus of neural activity from unimodal to transmodal regions (and vice versa), and the more pronounced these shifts in neural activity were when decisions relied on memory, the more efficiently individuals performed this task. Expand
Distinct individual differences in default mode network connectivity relate to off-task thought and text memory during reading
TLDR
It is found that individuals with poorer text-based memory tend to show reduced recruitment of left middle temporal gyrus in response to orthographic input, within a region located at the intersection of default mode, dorsal attention and frontoparietal networks. Expand
The effect of rule retrieval on activity in the default mode network
TLDR
An alternative account, consistent with the role of the DMN in episodic memory, might be that switches to a substantially new task increase demands on rule retrieval, which cannot explain increased DMN activity during large cognitive switches. Expand
Degrees of lateralisation in semantic cognition: Evidence from intrinsic connectivity
TLDR
The results show that hemispheric lateralisation is particularly important for the semantic control network, and that this lateralisation has contrasting functional consequences for the retrieval of dominant and subordinate aspects of knowledge. Expand
Default mode network can support the level of detail in experience during active task states
TLDR
A study combining experience sampling with functional neuroimaging concludes that activity within the DMN encodes information associated with ongoing cognition that goes beyond whether attention is directed to the task, including detailed experiences during active task states. Expand
Bipartite functional fractionation within the default network supports disparate forms of internally oriented cognition
TLDR
A striking dichotomy is found within the default network in terms of the subsystems’ task-driven functional and connectivity profiles, extending beyond previous inferences using meta-analysis and resting-state fMRI. Expand
Distinct default mode network subsystems show similarities and differences in the effect of task focus across reading and autobiographical memory
TLDR
It is found that different subsystems of the default mode network (DMN) do not fully dissociate across internally- and externally-oriented states, and theyDo not fully separate in terms of the effects of task focus; this depends on the task. Expand
Both default and multiple-demand regions represent semantic goal information
TLDR
It is demonstrated that DMN regions can decode current goal, alongside multiple-demand regions traditionally associated with cognitive control, and these results show that conceptual information related to the current goal dominates the multivariate response within default mode network. Expand
Bipartite Functional Fractionation within the Default Network Supports Disparate Forms of Internally Oriented Cognition
TLDR
Across multiple analyses, a striking dyadic structure within the DN is found in terms of the profiles of task-triggered fMRI response and effective connectivity, significantly extending beyond previous inferences based on meta-analysis and resting-state activities. Expand
The structural basis of semantic control: Evidence from individual differences in cortical thickness
TLDR
These results provide further evidence that semantic control is at least partially separable from domain‐general executive control and add to the knowledge of the neural basis of semantic control in three ways. Expand

Shaped by the Past: The Default Mode Network Supports Cognition that Is Independent of Immediate Perceptual Input
TLDR
The involvement of the DMN when people make decisions about where a shape was, rather than where it is now, supports the hypothesis that the core hubs of theDMN allow cognition to be guided by information other than the immediate perceptual input. Expand
The role of the default mode network in component processes underlying the wandering mind
TLDR
This study examines the relationships between individual differences in resting-state DMN connectivity, performance on memory, social and planning tasks and variability in spontaneous thought to investigate whether the DMN is critical to mind-wandering because it supports stimulus-independent cognition, memory retrieval, or both. Expand
Exploring the role of the posterior middle temporal gyrus in semantic cognition: Integration of anterior temporal lobe with executive processes
TLDR
It is suggested that pMTG may play a crucial role within a large-scale network that allows the integration of automatic retrieval in the default mode network with executively-demanding goal-oriented cognition, and that this could support the ability to understand actions and non-dominant semantic associations, allowing semantic retrieval to be ‘shaped’ to suit a task or context.

Automatic and Controlled Semantic Retrieval: TMS Reveals Distinct Contributions of Posterior Middle Temporal Gyrus and Angular Gyrus
TLDR
A novel functional dissociation is demonstrated between the angular gyrus (AG) and posterior middle temporal Gyrus (pMTG) in conceptual processing, indicating that pMTG contributes to the controlled retrieval of conceptual knowledge, while AG is critical for the efficient automatic retrieval of specific semantic information. Expand
Heteromodal conceptual processing in the angular gyrus
TLDR
Combined neuroimaging evidence from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is used to characterize the cortical networks underlying concept representation and finds that the angular gyrus was activated across all categories regardless of their modality-specific feature associations, consistent with a heteromodal account for theangular gyrus.

Default mode network connectivity during task execution
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the default mode network does not disengage during this paradigm, but instead may be involved in task relevant processing. Expand
Down but not out in posterior cingulate cortex: Deactivation yet functional coupling with prefrontal cortex during demanding semantic cognition
TLDR
Although overall levels of activity in the pCC are reduced during external tasks, this region may show greater coupling with executive control regions when information is retrieved from memory in a goal-directed manner. Expand
Fractionating the anterior temporal lobe: MVPA reveals differential responses to input and conceptual modality
TLDR
Converging findings from resting‐state connectivity supports converging evidence for the segregation of meaning and input modality in the anterior temporal lobe. Expand
Both the Middle Temporal Gyrus and the Ventral Anterior Temporal Area Are Crucial for Multimodal Semantic Processing: Distortion-corrected fMRI Evidence for a Double Gradient of Information Convergence in the Temporal Lobes
TLDR
Both MTG and vATL are activated in common for word and picture semantic processing, and this result follows from two principal axes of convergence in the temporal lobe. Expand
Schematic memory components converge within angular gyrus during retrieval
TLDR
This work identified the multi-voxel representations of different schema components, which converged within the angular gyrus during retrieval, and appears to recombine consolidated schema components into one memory representation. Expand
