Mind wandering is common during driving

Scientists have investigated mind wandering in volunteers during a driving simulation. Astonishingly, during the simulation, the volunteers reported mind wandering 70 percent of the time. The researchers could identify specific changes in brain patterns when the volunteers were mind wandering, but need to do further work to clarify if it is dangerous during driving….
