Study reveals a specific neural code for spatial goals, providing evidence for the brain's goal map that guides us to a remote location over space and time.
Study reveals the role the orbitofrontal cortex plays in individual differences to alcohol preference. The findings shed new light on how some are more prone to alcohol use disorder than others.
The orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) appears to play a significant role in our ability to make decisions. A network connecting the OFC and nucleus accumbens translates negative outcomes into values, while the OFC-amygdala circuit helps stabilize action values.
Researchers reveal the role the orbitofrontal cortex plays in identity expectations.
A new study reveals the piriform cortex is able to archive long term memory, but requires instruction from the orbiotfrontal cortex to indicate the event is to be stored as a long-term memory.
Changes in the orbitofrontal cortex and basolateral amygdala may help explain a person's preference for uncertain outcomes, as well as a preference for order and certainty, a new study reports.
Researchers uncover a casual relationship between behavioral control and a specific imbalance in brain function that exists during adolescence.
Researchers discover how neurons in the orbitofrontal cortex work to help us make decisions.
