Computational modeling and fMRI show the roles of brain regions in behavioral control John O’Doherty of the Caltech Brain Imaging Center has pinpointed areas of the brain—the inferior lateral prefrontal cortex and frontopolar cortex—that seem to serve as the “arbitrator” between model-based and model-free decision-making systems, weighing the reliability of the predictions each makes and then allocating control accordingly.  Professor O’Doherty believes that this can lead to better […]
