The default network (pictured below) is a set of midline and lateral regions that we suspect plays an important role in internally-directed, or “self-generated,” cognitive processes including self-referential decision making, theory of mind, memory, prospection, and valuation. Perhaps not surprisingly, this network also activates when our attention shifts away from the external world and our mind begins to wander.
