The Default Mode of Human Cognition

如果静息态功能磁共振是你熟悉的模态,那你一定知道静息态对默认网络发现发展的贡献。静息态与默认网络似乎成为捆绑在一起的概念。但默认网络的功能究竟是什么?除去在你神游mind-wandering的静息状态下观察默认网络,任务(task)状态下负激活默认网络,有没有任务状态下激活过默认网络?Open Talk这一期邀请了上海复旦大学类脑智能科学与技术研究院青年研究员Deniz Batansever博士,为大家分享默认网络的科研新进展。

Deniz Batansever毕业于剑桥大学临床神经科学,后在约克大学Semantics and Mind-wandering实验室做博士后,两年前,Deniz来到了复旦,成为了一枚在中国做科研的歪果仁。Deniz的研究工作的长远目标是从认知,计算和临床等方向上对脑,行为和认知之间的关系进行解读,主要集中研究默认网络在人脑认知上对学习、记忆、认知弹性、决策的相关功能。目前Deniz正在招募博士后(公众号后台回复“复旦博后信息”获得详细信息),如果你对Deniz的实验室感兴趣,就来听报告提问吧!

题目:The Default Mode of Human Cognition
摘要
Since its discovery as a set of brain regions that showed profound deactivations in goal-oriented tasks as well as strongly coupled brain activity dynamics at rest, mounting evidence on the “default mode” brain network has long raised a puzzling question: Is there a default mode of brain function? In addition to being associated with a range of internal mentation processes such as mind-wandering, creativity and self-consciousness, its perseverance across the mammalian species and ubiquitous alterations in a variety of mental health disorders point towards a fundamental role for this brain network in human cognition. In this talk, I will present recent work highlighting the contribution of the default mode network to our ability to employ learned models of the world around us in order to provide efficient and adaptive responses to environmental demands. As such, I will argue that the primary functional role for this network might be to seamlessly drive a series of automated thoughts, decisions and actions that govern our daily lives, which may have important implications for our current understanding of a healthy and adaptive brain function.
