Deciding Advantageously Before Knowing the Advantageous Strategy
Deciding advantageously in a complex situation is thought to require overt reasoning on declarative knowledge, namely, on facts pertaining to premises, options for action, and outcomes of actionsExpand

Characterization of the decision-making deficit of patients with ventromedial prefrontal cortex lesions.
On a gambling task that models real-life decisions, patients with bilateral lesions of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (VM) opt for choices that yield high immediate gains in spite of higherExpand

Emotion, decision making and the orbitofrontal cortex.
The somatic marker hypothesis provides a systems-level neuroanatomical and cognitive framework for decision making and the influence on it by emotion. The key idea of this hypothesis is that decisionExpand

Different Contributions of the Human Amygdala and Ventromedial Prefrontal Cortex to Decision-Making
The somatic marker hypothesis proposes that decision-making is a process that depends on emotion. Studies have shown that damage of the ventromedial prefrontal (VMF) cortex precludes the ability toExpand

Subcortical and cortical brain activity during the feeling of self-generated emotions
In a series of [15O]PET experiments aimed at investigating the neural basis of emotion and feeling, 41 normal subjects recalled and re-experienced personal life episodes marked by sadness, happiness,Expand

A neural basis for lexical retrieval
Two parallel studies using positron emission tomography, one conducted in neurological patients with brain lesions, the other in normal individuals, indicate that the normal process of retrieving words that denote concrete entities depends in part on multiple regions of the left cerebral hemisphere, located outside the classic language areas.

Failure to respond autonomically to anticipated future outcomes following damage to prefrontal cortex.
Following damage to specific sectors of the prefrontal cortex, humans develop a defect in real-life decision making, in spite of otherwise normal intellectual performance. The patients so affectedExpand

Dissociation Of Working Memory from Decision Making within the Human Prefrontal Cortex
We tested the hypothesis that cognitive functions related to working memory (assessed with delay tasks) are distinct from those related to decision making (assessed with a gambling task), and thatExpand

Normal neuroanatomical variation due to age: The major lobes and a parcellation of the temporal region
We used high-resolution MRI to investigate gray and white matter aging in the major lobes of the cerebrum (frontal, parietal, temporal, occipital) and the major sectors of the temporal lobe (temporalExpand
