Cross-correlation of low-frequency temporal fluctuations (<0.08 Hz) was used to correlate widely separated anatomic regions during continuous performance of a spatial working memory task. The regions of highest correlation to right-hemisphere dorsolateral prefrontal cortex correspond to the regions of largest baseline signal change in a conventional block-style functional MRI paradigm. Additionally, it is shown that the correlations between elements of the functional network increase during performance of a task that activates the network when compared to a task that does not directly stimulate the functionally connected network.
