The DMN is shown to be highly active during resting state and is rapidly deactivated during externally directed tasks. However, it is unclear how demanding the task needs to be to switch the DMN out of the resting state mode. Aiming to answer this question we chose a visual oddball paradigm and assessed the functional connectivity of the DMN during resting state in a rest-task-rest design. The oddball paradigm demands very little cognitive resources and therefore we hypothesize that the DMN will not be altered in its connectivity pattern during post task resting state.
