The Tree

 

A neural network for mental orientation in ‘space, time, and person’, is now fairly well established in humans and includes widespread regions in the frontal, patietal, and temporal cortices. The network overlaps extensively with what has been termed the ‘default mode network’, which is active in ‘mind wandering’- spontaneous internal activity unrelated to the concerns of the moment.
