Rule-guided behavior is essential in quickly adapting to one's ever-changing environment. In particular, learned rules can quickly be used in new contexts or applied to new stimuli (which confers an advantage over restricting learning to perceptual - motor associations). Here, we propose a new neurocomputational model of automaticity in rule-guided behavior. The proposed model assumes two parallel neural pathways corresponding to “naïve” and “expert” rule use. The development of automaticity is… CONTINUE READING
