J Neurosci. 2017 Aug 07;: Authors: Wendelken C, Ferrer E, Ghetti S, Bailey S, Cutting L, Bunge SA Abstract Prior research points to a positive concurrent relationship between reasoning ability and both fronto-parietal structural connectivity, as measured by […]
Related Articles The Segregation and Integration of Distinct Brain Networks and Their Relationship to Cognition. J Neurosci. 2016 Nov 30;36(48):12083-12094 Authors: Cohen JR, D’Esposito M Abstract A critical feature of the human brain that gives rise to complex cognition is its ability to reconfigure its network structure dynamically and adaptively in response to the environment. […]
Related Articles Decoding subjective decisions from orbitofrontal cortex. Nat Neurosci. 2016 Jul;19(7):973-80 Authors: Rich EL, Wallis JD Abstract When making a subjective choice, the brain must compute a value for each option and compare those values to make a decision. The orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) is critically involved in this process, but the neural mechanisms remain […]
