Scientists know what your brain looks like in Zen mode

Recent studies have given us a picture of what your brain looks like when you "lose yourself" in the middle of a something which has your full engagement, such as movies, sex, or complex tasks.

Personally, I'd like to be able to find that zen place more often... when my brain is going at a mile a second in its usual crazy mode, my great fantasy is that it will just shut up and let me do my work. I've been there only a few times, through the years, mostly when I've stopped trying, and learned to just do what I'm working on.

But I'm not sure I really needed to know what my brain looked like in a scan of the event.
