The brain chooses between two neural systems responsible for emulation learning and imitation learning. Study reveals how the brain chooses which strategy to employ when faced with an observational learning task.
Researchers have discovered a visual mechanism that helps us to make snap judgement about what is really alive and what is simulated in a matter of milliseconds.
Researchers report they have identified individual neurons in the brain that support observational learning.
Study reports the brain calculates a distribution of probabilities for each of many distinct possibilities.
