The interlinked role of the frontoparietal and cingulo-opercular networks in adaptive behavior

  • Using fMRI, the authors assessed activation of the frontoparietal network (FPN) and cingulo-opercular network (CON) with tasks that manipulated control over either present- or future-orientated time frames.
  • The authors concluded that each CON subnetwork was linked to a respective FPN which, in turn, mediated behavioral change. They concluded that interlinked parallel CON-FPN subnetworks are responsible for facilitating controlled behavior over different time frames.
