Default and Executive Network Interactivity Involved in Goal-Directed Cognition

Substantial neuroimaging evidence suggests that spontaneous engagement of the default network impairs performance on tasks requiring executive control. In this talk, I will present novel paradigms examining default and executive network interactivity. The findings suggest that the default network does indeed support performance on executive control tasks, but only when cognitive control processes engage long-term memory representations.
