Some human brain areas are tonically active in a resting state when subjects are not engaged in any overt task. The activity of these areas decreases when subjects are engaged in a wide variety of laboratory tasks designed to study cognitive operations. It has been suggested that these areas, among them the medial parietal (precyneus) and the dorsomedial prefrontal cortices, may support a "default state" of the human brain. Passive visual observation of laboratory stimuli typically yields no… Expand
The Dorsal Medial Prefrontal Cortex Responds Preferentially to Social Interactions during Natural Viewing
TLDR
The findings suggest that the DMPFC is finely tuned for processing social interaction above other categories and that this preference is maintained during unrestricted viewing of complex natural stimuli such as movies. Expand
Individual differences in the spontaneous recruitment of brain regions supporting mental state understanding when viewing natural social scenes.
People are able to rapidly infer complex personality traits and mental states even from the most minimal person information. Research has shown that when observers view a natural scene containingExpand
Detection of PCC functional connectivity characteristics in resting-state fMRI in mild Alzheimer’s disease
TLDR
It is suggested that the characteristics of resting-state functional connectivity could plausibly provide an early imaging biomarker for AD and the results of increased connectivity may support the compensatory-recruitment hypothesis. Expand
Affect and the Brain's Functional Organization: A Resting-State Connectivity Approach
TLDR
A predominantly right-hemispheric network with affect-specific elements as the underlying organization of emotional processes is suggested. Expand
Failing to deactivate: resting functional abnormalities in autism.
TLDR
It is speculated that the lack of deactivation in the autism group is indicative of abnormal internally directed processes at rest, which may be an important contribution to the social and emotional deficits of autism. Expand
The default mode network in chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) is similar to that of humans.
TLDR
When chimpanzees make social discriminations, these same areas (particularly precuneus) are highly active relative to nonsocial tasks, suggesting that, as in humans, the chimpanzee DMN may play a role in social cognition. Expand
Deciphering human motion to discriminate social interactions: a developmental neuroimaging study
TLDR
A shared set of brain regions enabling the discrimination of social interactions from neutral movements through human motion is already present in 8-year-old children, and developmental processes such as refinements in the social brain and mirror system would help grasping subtle cues in non-verbal aspects ofsocial interactions. Expand
Neural correlates of social cognition in naturalistic settings: A model-free analysis approach
TLDR
Results show that the mental state reasoning network can be decomposed into circumscribed functional networks mediating differential aspects of Theory of Mind. Expand
Beyond superior temporal cortex: intersubject correlations in narrative speech comprehension.
TLDR
Extended bilateral inferior frontal and premotor regions were implicated in auditory as well as audiovisual language comprehension, and may be important for higher-level linguistic processes, and interfaces with extralinguistic cognitive, affective, and interpersonal systems. 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

Functional connectivity in the resting brain: A network analysis of the default mode hypothesis
TLDR
This study constitutes, to the knowledge, the first resting-state connectivity analysis of the default mode and provides the most compelling evidence to date for the existence of a cohesive default mode network. Expand
Emotion-induced changes in human medial prefrontal cortex: II. During anticipatory anxiety.
TLDR
Regional cerebral blood flow was examined in the human medial prefrontal cortex with positron emission tomography during anticipatory anxiety and changes in MPFC and in the midbrain were correlated with each other and with anxiety self rating. Expand
Emotion-induced changes in human medial prefrontal cortex: I. During cognitive task performance.
TLDR
Results suggest that the MPFC is part of a network, including the hypothalamus and brainstem, whose activity reflects a dynamic interplay between cognitive task performance and emotion. Expand
A Parametric Manipulation of Factors Affecting Task-induced Deactivation in Functional Neuroimaging
TLDR
Results suggest that TID represents reallocation of processing resources from areas in which TID occurs to areas involved in task performance, and short-term memory load and stimulus rate also predict suppression of spontaneous thought. Expand
Attention-related activity during episodic memory retrieval: a cross-function fMRI study
TLDR
The present results suggest that many of the activations attributed to specific cognitive processes, such as episodic memory, may actually reflect more general cognitive operations. Expand
Searching for a baseline: Functional imaging and the resting human brain
TLDR
This work explores the possibility that there might be a baseline or resting state of brain function involving a specific set of mental operations, including the manner in which a baseline is defined and the implications of such a baseline for the understanding ofbrain function. Expand
Social perception from visual cues: role of the STS region
TLDR
Single-cell recordings in monkeys, and neurophysiological and neuroimaging studies in humans, reveal that cerebral cortex in and near the superior temporal sulcus (STS) region is an important component of this perceptual system. Expand
Distinct neural systems subserve person and object knowledge
TLDR
A unique pattern of brain activity was associated with person judgments and included brain regions previously implicated in other aspects of social-cognitive functioning: medial prefrontal cortex, superior temporal cortex, intraparietal sulcus, and fusiform gyrus. Expand

TLDR
Studies of single cells, field potential recordings and functional neuroimaging data indicate that specialized visual mechanisms exist in the superior temporal sulcus (STS) of both human and non-human primates that produce selective neural responses to moving natural images of faces and bodies.

The Anterior Frontomedian Cortex and Evaluative Judgment: An fMRI Study
TLDR
The results show a functional dissociation between the activations in the anterior frontomedian cortex and in the inferior precuneus, which was mainly activated by episodic retrieval processes, supporting its function as a multimodal association area that integrates the different aspects of retrieved and newly presented information.
