The functional neuroanatomy of the human orbitofrontal cortex: evidence from neuroimaging and neuropsychology
TLDR
This work reviews the neuroanatomical and neuropsychological literature on the human orbitofrontal cortex, and proposes two distinct trends of neural activity based on a meta-analysis of neuroimaging studies, including a mediolateral and posterior-anterior distinction. Expand
The orbitofrontal cortex and reward.

TLDR
Evidence shows that the orbitofrontal cortex is involved in decoding and representing some primary reinforcers such as taste and touch; in learning and reversing associations of visual and other stimuli to these primary rein forcers; and in controlling and correcting reward-related and punishment-related behavior, and thus in emotion. Expand
Abstract reward and punishment representations in the human orbitofrontal cortex
TLDR
Findings indicate that one emotional involvement of the human orbitofrontal cortex is its representation of the magnitudes of abstract rewards and punishments, such as receiving or losing money. Expand

TLDR
Evidence shows that the orbitofrontal cortex is involved in decoding and representing some primary reinforcers such as taste and touch; in learning and reversing associations of visual and other stimuli to these primary rein forcers; and in controlling and correcting reward-related and punishment-related behavior, and thus in emotion.

Computational analysis of the role of the hippocampus in memory
TLDR
The authors draw together the results of a series of detailed computational studies and show how they are contributing to the development of a theory of hippocampal function by producing a computational theory of how it operates, based on neuroanatomical and neurophysiological information about the different neuronal systems contained within the hippocampus.

  • 6 June 2019
TLDR
Evidence shows that the orbitofrontal cortex is involved in decoding some primary reinforcers such as taste; in learning and reversing associations of visual and other stimuli to these primary rein forcers; and plays an executive function in controlling and correcting reward-related and punishment-related behaviour, and thus in emotion.

Emotion-related learning in patients with social and emotional changes associated with frontal lobe damage.
TLDR
It is suggested that a difficulty in modifying responses, especially when followed by negative consequences, as manifested in these simple laboratory tests, may contribute to the inappropriate behaviour shown in daily life by patients with frontal lobe damage. Expand
Neural networks and brain function
Pattern association memory autoassociation memory competitive networks, including self-organizing maps error-correcting networks - perceptrons, backpropagation of error in multilayer networks, andExpand
INVARIANT FACE AND OBJECT RECOGNITION IN THE VISUAL SYSTEM
Neurophysiological evidence is described, showing that some neurons in the macaque temporal cortical visual areas have responses that are invariant with respect to the position, size and view ofExpand
Representation of pleasant and aversive taste in the human brain.
TLDR
It is concluded that the orbitofrontal cortex is involved in processing tastes that have both positive and negative affective valence and that different areas of the orbit ofrontal cortex may be activated by pleasant and unpleasant tastes. Expand
