The brain in flow: A systematic review on the neural basis of the flow state
Cortex. 2022 Jul 5;154:348-364. doi: 10.1016/j.cortex.2022.06.005. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Flow state is a subjective experience that people report when task performance is experienced as automatic, intrinsically rewarding, optimal and effortless. While this intriguing phenomenon is the subject of a plethora of behavioural studies, only recently researchers have started to look at its neural correlates. Here, we aim to systematically and critically review the existing literature on the neural correlates of the flow state.METHODS: Three electronic databases (Web of Science, Scopus and PsycINFO) were searched to acquire information on eligible articles in July, 2021, and updated in March, 2022.
