Definition of synchronization: two or many subsystems sharing specific common frequencies
Broader notion: two or many subsystems adjust some of their time-varying properties to a common behavior due to coupling or common external forcing

as a reference baseline?
What does the brain do when not actively engaged in
goal-directed cognitive tasks –
when, for want of a better term, we might say it is at “rest”?
What functions does the ‘resting’ brain subserve
and how do these impinge on more general aspects of cognition?

The issue of how different brain regions are connected functionally, that is, how the interplay of different areas subserves cognitive function, has become a key concern in neuroscience.
This has led to a certain confusion with regard to terminology.
Should only the task-negative network be termed the DMN and contrasted with the task-positive network?
Or should both task-positive and task-negative networks be regarded as elements of the DMN?
In the context of DMN activity, MPFC is thought to mediate terminology. a dynamic interplay between emotional processing and cognition functions which map on to the ventral and dorsal regions, respectively ([Gusnard et al., 2001], [Raichle et al., 2001] and [Simpson et al., 2001]).
In the top two examples, more synchrony was observed when attention was focused on the tactile stimuli; this was the more prevalent effect. An example of lower synchrony with attention on the tactile stimulus — the less frequent effect — is shown in the lower plot.
