Humans have the remarkable ability to mentally travel through past and future times. However, while memory for the times of past events has been much investigated, little is known about how imagined future events are temporally located. Using a think-aloud protocol, we found that the temporal location of past and future events is rarely directly accessed, but instead mostly relies on reconstructive and inferential strategies. References to lifetime periods and factual knowledge (about the self, others, and the world) were most frequently used to determine the temporal location of both past and future events. Event details (e.g., places, persons, or weather conditions) were also used, but mainly for past events. Finally, the results showed that events whose temporal location was directly accessed were judged more important for personal goals. Together, these findings shed new light on the mechanisms involved in locating personal events in past and future times. [less ▲]

A frequent and equal tendency to think positively about one’s past and future has been conceptualised as a balanced time perspective (TP). Such a dispositional temporal orientation has been associated with higher life satisfaction and happiness. The aim of the present study was to develop and to validate a French version of the Balanced Time Perspective Scale (BTPS; Webster, 2011), which has been specifically designed to assess the combined use of positive future and past mental representations as resources for the self. Data were collected from an online survey in a sample of 622 French-speaking individuals from the general population. Results indicated that the French version of the BTPS replicated the 2-factor structure of the original questionnaire, and showed excellent internal consistency. External validity was supported by specific rela- tionships with measures of TP and positive affect. In addition, a high propensity to project oneself positively both in the future and the past was associated with greater use of cognitive reappraisal. [less ▲]

This study investigated the ability of individuals with disordered gambling to imagine future events. Problem gamblers (n=35) and control participants (n=35) were asked to imagine positive and negative future events for three temporal distances (one week, one year, 5-10years). Then, a variety of phenomenological aspects of their future thoughts (e.g., sensory and contextual details, autonoetic consciousness) were rated. Compared to control subjects, problem gamblers generated fewer positive and negative events across all temporal distances, an impairment that was correlated to verbal fluency scores. Furthermore, problem gamblers rated imagined events as containing fewer sensory and contextual details, and lacking autonoetic consciousness. These findings demonstrate that problem gambling is associated with a reduced future-oriented mental time travel ability and, in particular, with diminished autonoetic consciousness when imagining future events.

Neuroimaging studies have revealed the recruitment of a range of neural networks during the resting state, which might reflect a variety of cognitive experiences and processes occurring in an individual's mind. In this study, we focused on the default mode network (DMN) and attentional networks and investigated their association with distinct mental states when participants are not performing an explicit task. To investigate the range of possible cognitive experiences more directly, this study proposes a novel method of resting-state fMRI experience sampling, informed by a phenomenological investigation of the fluctuation of mental states during the resting state. We hypothesized that DMN activity would increase as a function of internal mentation and that the activity of dorsal and ventral networks would indicate states of top–down versus bottom–up attention at rest. Results showed that dorsal attention network activity fluctuated as a function of subjective reports of attentional control, providing evidence that activity of this network reflects the perceived recruitment of controlled attentional processes during spontaneous cognition. Activity of the DMN increased when participants reported to be in a subjective state of internal mentation, but not when they reported to be in a state of perception. This study provides direct evidence for a link between fluctuations of resting-state neural activity and fluctuations in specific cognitive processes. [less ▲]

La Perspective Temporelle Equilibrée fait référence à une disposition individuelle caractérisée par le fait de se projeter mentalement dans le futur et dans le passé de manière positive et fréquente. L’objectif de notre étude était de valider la version française d’une échelle, initialement conçue en anglais, évaluant cette orientation temporelle : la “Balanced Time Perspective Scale” (Webster, 2011). Une étude en ligne a permis de recueillir les données de 622 participants francophones issus de la population générale. Les résultats indiquent que la version française réplique la structure en deux facteurs du questionnaire original et plaident en faveur d’une bonne validité de construit. De surcroît, les résultats montrent qu’une tendance importante à se projeter mentalement dans le futur et dans le passé de manière positive et fréquente est associée à la réévaluation cognitive, une stratégie de régulation émotionnelle. En somme, ce questionnaire permet d’évaluer la perspective temporelle, qui est ici envisagée en tant qu’importante ressource pour le self, et ce, en étroite relation avec les capacités de régulation émotionnelle.

Recent research suggests that sleepiness and mind-wandering—the experience of thoughts that are both stimulus-independent and task-unrelated—frequently co-occur and are both associated with poorer cognitive functioning. Whether these two phenomena have distinguishable effects on task performance remains unknown, however. To investigate this question, we employed the online experience sampling of mind-wandering episodes and subjective sleepiness during a laboratory task (the Sustained Attention to Response Task; SART), and also assessed mind-wandering frequency and sleep-related disturbances in daily life using self-report questionnaires. The results revealed that the tendency to experience mind-wandering episodes during the SART and daily life was associated with higher levels of daytime sleepiness and sleep-related disturbances. Importantly, however, mind-wandering and sleepiness were independent predictors of SART performance at both the within- and between-individuals levels. These findings demonstrate that, although mind-wandering and sleepiness frequently co-occur, these two phenomena have distinguishable and additive effects on task performance. [less ▲]

Mind-wandering refers to the occurrence of thoughts whose content is both decoupled from stimuli present in the immediate environment and unrelated to the task currently being carried out. Although this phenomenon has been the object of increasing interest from the scientific community during le last decade, proportionally few studies have attempted to clearly determine the form, content, and possible functions of this particular kind of cognitions. In this presentation, we will review recent evidence from studies mainly performed in our lab suggesting that most instances of mind-wandering refer to the anticipation and planning of future events and are also closely related to the processing of personal goals. More specifically, we will first discuss the findings from behavioral research that examined the phenomenological features of mind-wandering with the use of experience sampling procedures during laboratory tasks. Results of these studies mainly revealed that most of reported mind-wandering episodes are temporally oriented towards the future and that this ‘prospective bias’ can be increased when participants’ attention had been oriented toward their personal goals prior to performing the tasks. We will next review the results of neuroimaging studies that investigated the neural correlates of mind-wandering and we will more specifically focus on meta-analytic evidences suggesting that the neural correlates of mind-wandering strongly overlap with those associated with episodic future thinking and personal goal processing. Together, these results suggest that mind-wandering may have an important adaptive value and could in particular play a key role in planning and preparing for upcoming events related to the individuals’ personal goals.

To investigate the brain regions supporting the remembrance of internal thoughts versus external events, we asked participants to perform a short walk while wearing a lifelogging device that continuously and automatically took pictures. In a subsequent fMRI session, they were shown brief sequences of pictures from their walk and were asked to remember either external events or internal thoughts that they experienced while walking. Results showed that remembering internal thoughts activated the medial prefrontal cortex and temporal poles to a greater extent than remembering external events, whereas remembering external events was associated with higher activation in lateral frontoparietal regions. These findings suggest that memory for internal thoughts involves the reactivation of brain regions supporting the initial formation of these thoughts. [less ▲]

Memory can be flexibly used to image events that might happen in one’s personal future, a capacity that has been referred to as episodic future thinking. In this talk, I will present data showing that many episodic future thoughts are not represented in isolation, but instead are part of higher-order event clusters that organize imagined events in coherent themes and causal sequences. Personal goals seem to play an important role in this organization and neuroimaging evidence shows that event clusters recruit brain regions supporting conceptual and integrative processing. These findings suggest that episodic future thinking involves the integration of specific event representations with autobiographical knowledge, which contextualizes imagined events with respect to personal goals and general expectations about one’s life.
