When our mind strays from a present activity, our movements become slower and more erratic06th February 2023
When our minds wander during performance of a task, our fine motor movements become slower, less direct and more complex. The deeper our minds wander, the more erratic our fine movements become, indicating greater detachment from the present environment. Our brains process stimuli from the external environment more weakly and brain activity becomes more similar to brain waves that are present during sleep. These are the results of research done by Mariana Dias da Silva-van Riel who will receive her doctorate on February 8.
