Correctly selecting appropriate actions in an uncertain environment requires gathering experience about the available actions by sampling them over several trials. Recent findings suggest that the human rostral cingulate zone (RCZ) is important for the integration of extended action-outcome associations across multiple trials and in coding the subjective value of each action. During functional magnetic resonance imaging, healthy volunteers performed two versions of a probabilistic reversal… CONTINUE READING
