Abstract

Humans spend a lot of time thinking about things that are not going on around them. This process is called mind wandering and previous work shows that these events can be regarded as a distraction from a task at hand, interfering with your concentration, while other research shows positive impact on future goals in less demanding cognitive tasks. In our project we have researched the influence of mind wandering on sequential decision making. It is shown that retrospective revaluation takes place during unrelated tasks between sequential decision making tasks, and we intend to show that the revaluation is actually credited to the cognitive process of mind wandering and has a beneficial effect on future goals. From the experiment we did not find enough evidence to conclude that there is a relation between mind wandering and retrospective revaluation.
