Two computational modeling studies are reported, serving to articulate the conflict monitoring hypothesis and examine its implications, including a feedback loop connecting conflict monitoring to cognitive control, and a number of important behavioral phenomena.
beta-VAE: Learning Basic Visual Concepts with a Constrained Variational Framework
Learning an interpretable factorised representation of the independent data generative factors of the world without supervision is an important precursor for the development of artificial…
Rubber hands ‘feel’ touch that eyes see
An illusion in which tactile sensations are referred to an alien limb is reported, which reveals a three-way interaction between vision, touch and proprioception, and may supply evidence concerning the basis of bodily self-identification.
The neural basis of error detection: conflict monitoring and the error-related negativity.
It is concluded that the ERN can be explained in terms of response conflict and that monitoring for conflict may provide a simple mechanism for detecting errors.
Anterior cingulate cortex, error detection, and the online monitoring of performance.
Results confirm that this region shows activity during erroneous responses, but activity was also observed in the same region during correct responses under conditions of increased response competition, which suggests that the ACC detects conditions under which errors are likely to occur rather than errors themselves.
Relational inductive biases, deep learning, and graph networks
It is argued that combinatorial generalization must be a top priority for AI to achieve human-like abilities, and that structured representations and computations are key to realizing this objective.

Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to measure brain activation during performance of a task where, for a particular subset of trials, the strength of selection-for-action is inversely related to the degree of response conflict, providing evidence in favour of the conflict-monitoring account of ACC function.

Juxtaposing the conflict-monitoring and decision-making accounts suggests an extension of the Conflict-Monitoring theory, by which conflict would act as a teaching signal driving a form of avoidance learning, to bias behavioral decision making toward cognitively efficient tasks and strategies.
