When cognitive neuroscientists were first mapping the brain two decades ago, they focused on the regions that were activated when people performed different tasks, such as tapping fingers or watching a movie. They filtered out what was considered “background noise,” the low-frequency fluctuations originating from biological operations like heart beat and respiration.
