Brain's problem-solving function at work when we daydream
Date:5/11/2009

ristoff. "Until now, scientists have thought they operated on an either-or basis when one was activated, the other was thought to be dormant." The less subjects were aware that their mind was wandering, the more both networks were activated.

The quantity and quality of brain activity suggests that people struggling to solve complicated problems might be better off switching to a simpler task and letting their mind wander.

"When you daydream, you may not be achieving your immediate goal say reading a book or paying attention in class but your mind may be taking that time to address more important questions in your life, such as advancing your career or personal relationships," says Christoff.
