We aim to suggest that the occurrence of false memory under these two states is a result of reinforcing some abilities and changes in cognitive syste...
By a systematic analysis of the current literature on the neural correlates of mind wandering, that is, the default network (DN), and by shedding light on some determinative factors and conditions which affect the relationship between mind wandering and negative mood, we show that (1) mind wandering per se does not necessarily have a positive corre...
