  • n. In botany, the periodic condition of dormancy in the history of woody plants, bulbs, etc.; also, the quiescence of some seeds and spores (resting-spores) between maturity and germination; in general, any state of suspended activity.

  • "The origins of insight in resting-state brain activity."

  • Instead of recording mental activity when volunteers work on a cognitive task, resting-state connectivity scans the spontaneous activity that takes place in their brains while they do nothing.

  • The researchers use resting-state functional connectivity MRI to identify and study brain networks.

  • When I went back and asked one of our Pentecostal subjects to submit to a resting-state scan lying quietly on the table for twenty minutes, without thinking, I again discovered that she had asymmetrical activity between the two sides of her thalamus, very similar to what I found in the resting-state scans of the Buddhist practitioners and nuns.

  • It occurred then to Krogh that only a certain number of capillaries contain blood at any one time during the resting-state, and that this number increases when a greater flow of blood has to be allowed through, i.e. a larger minute-volume.

  • Fair, Cohen, Power, Dosenbach, Church, Miezin, Schlaggar & Peterson analyzed correlations in neural recruitment among 210 subjects aged 7-31 while they completed no task whatsoever - a so-called resting-state functional connectivity MRI (rs-fcMRI) study.

  • To do this they analyzed the fluctuations in average signal intensity occurring with a low temporal frequency (.009 to .08 Hz) that were unique to gray matter (relative to white matter or the ventricles) in 4 distinct networks, including a cingulo-opercular network, a fronto-parietal network, a cerebellar network, and the so-called default network (the network most commonly recruited during resting-state studies).

  • The participants were then divided into two groups - those who reported solving the problems mostly by sudden insight, and those who reported solving the problems more methodically - and resting-state brain activity for these groups was compared.
