Along with the study of brain activity evoked by external stimuli, an increased interest in the research of background, "noisy" brain activity is fast developing in current neuroscience. It is becoming apparent that this "resting-state" activity is a major factor determining other, more particular, responses to stimuli and hence it can be argued that background activity carries important information used by the nervous systems for adaptive behaviors. In this context, we investigated the… CONTINUE READING
