A hierarchy for relational reasoning in the prefrontal cortex

  title={A hierarchy for relational reasoning in the prefrontal cortex},
  author={Daniel C. Krawczyk and M. Michelle McClelland and Colin M Donovan},
The human brain possesses a unique capacity to reason about abstract relationships among items in our environment. The neural organization of reasoning abilities has remained elusive. Two approaches toward investigating human reasoning have involved studying visuo-spatial reasoning abilities and studying analogical reasoning. These approaches have both revealed anterior prefrontal cortex (PFC) involvement, but no prior studies have jointly investigated these two forms of reasoning to understand… CONTINUE READING
