Going back in time ….kinda January 24, 2007

Posted by Sharath Rao in humor, science.

Teacher : Sharath, what are you doing there ?

Sharath : Nothing teacher.

Teacher : Are you dreaming in class ?

Sharath : Yeah, but thats because “a default network of regions in the brain’s cortex—a grouping known to be active when the mind is completely unoccupied—is firing away as a person is engaged in routine activities. The research team speculates that when engaged in a mundane task, mind wandering allows people to remain properly aroused. Alternatively, they say, daydreams could be a conduit for uniting experiences from a person’s past or present to their future. Or, the brain may just have evolved the ability to handle more than one function at once. Jonathan Schooler, a psychologist at the University of British Columbia, says that Mason’s study illustrates that daydreaming is really the default state of the brain.”

You kinda get my point teacher, don’t ya 😉 [ Dubara mat poochna 😉 ]
