Default Mode Network

New research out of MIT talks about how the Default Mode Network in the brain is synchronous during inactive states. The normal synchrony pattern in adults who have recovered from ADD as a child demonstrate marked synchrony in the DFN. Previous research showed that two major hubs – the posterior cingulate cortex and the medial prefrontal cortex no longer synchronize. The task positive network is also suppressed when the DFN is active in individuals with ADHD. There is in essence a thinking brain and a feeling brain. In this study 35 people ere sampled.
