I'm never too busy to post neuroscience linkies!

Whenever you're letting your mind wander, not thinking about anything in particular, there's a few areas in your brain that have coordinated, cyclic activity levels. This activity is suppressed whenever you decide to concentrate on a task. This brain network has been labeled "the default network", and it's theorized to play a role in abstract simulations.

If you want to read a little about it, ScienceNews has this really neat piece out.
