The Role of the Medial Frontal Cortex in Cognitive Control
New findings in cognitive neuroscience concerning cortical interactions that subserve the recruitment and implementation of cognitive control are evaluated, suggesting that monitoring-related pMFC activity serves as a signal that engages regulatory processes in the LPFC to implement performance adjustments.
Error-related brain potentials are differentially related to awareness of response errors: evidence from an antisaccade task.
Results from the present experiment are consistent with the view that the Ne and Pe reflect the activity of two separate error monitoring processes, of which only the later process, reflected by the Pe, is associated with conscious error recognition and remedial action.
Electrophysiological correlates of anterior cingulate function in a go/no-go task: Effects of response conflict and trial type frequency
Results are consistent with the view that the N2 in go/no-go tasks reflects conflict arising from competition between the execution and the inhibition of a single response, and suggest previous conceptions of the no-go N2 as indexing response inhibition may be in need of revision.
Striatum and pre-SMA facilitate decision-making under time pressure
Functional neuroimaging showed that cueing for speed activates the striatum and the pre-supplementary motor area, brain structures that are part of a closed-loop motor circuit involved in the preparation of voluntary action plans.
A computational account of altered error processing in older age: Dopamine and the error-related negativity
To study age-related changes in error processing, performance and ERN measures of younger and high-functioning older adults are obtained and age changes could be simulated by manipulation of a single parameter of the neurocomputational model corresponding to weakened phasic activity of the mesencephalic dopamine system.
Alcohol Consumption Impairs Detection of Performance Errors in Mediofrontal Cortex
It is shown that the consumption of alcohol in moderate doses induces a significant deterioration of the ability to detect the activation of erroneous responses as reflected in the amplitude of brain electrical activity associated with the anterior cingulate cortex.
Conscious perception of errors and its relation to the anterior insula
It is suggested that errors elicit reactions highly reminiscent of an orienting response and may thus induce the autonomic arousal needed to recruit the required mental and physical resources.
