A proud moment... my first PhD student's first, first-author paper out today in -- Hierarchical reasoning by neural circuits in the frontal cortex -- Congratulations Morteza Sarafyazd!
New research is revealing the neural circuitry behind decision-making behavior in nonhuman primates. Read it in Science: ($) #Neuroscience
New dorsal/ventral distinction in macaque medial PFC - DMFC signals errors, and ACC integrates errors to drive task switches. Very nice work showing causal relationship, organizes a lot of literature
This looks cool, hierarchical decision processes in PFC - graded confidence in low-level decision processes guides longer-term behavioral strategies
Really nice paper by Sarafyazd and Jazayer Hierarchical reasoning by neural circuits in the frontal cortex
Hierarchical reasoning by neural circuits in the frontal cortex. Cool study.
"monkeys, like humans, can reason hierarchically and [make model-based decisions realized by] a distributed and hierarchically organized neural circuit in the frontal cortex...." –Morteza Sarafyazd & in
Hierarchical reasoning by neural circuits in the frontal cortex by ‘s team
A moment of clarity to assuage your Saturday evening existential angst: "In the presence of hierarchies, sources of failures are ambiguous"
