Hum Brain Mapp 31:1065-75. 2010..This demonstrated that a neural fingerprint distinguishing virtual from real learning persists when subjects use a mental representation of the learnt environment with equivalent performances...

Centre d Imagerie Neurosciences et Applications aux Pathologies, CI NAPS UMR6232, CNRS, CEA I2BM, GIP Cyceron, France
Brain Res Bull 80:133-8. 2009..These results indicate that the brain default mode is a dynamic state during which context dependent local increases of cerebral blood flow may occur on a short-term, likely for the consolidation of newly acquired knowledge...
