Medial prefrontal cortex (MPFC) and lateral prefrontal cortex (LPFC) both contribute to goal-directed behavior, but their precise role remains unclear. Several lines of evidence suggest that MPFC is more important than LPFC for outcome-guided response selection. To examine this, we trained two subjects to perform a task that required them to monitor the specific outcome associated with a specific response on a trial-by-trial basis. While the subjects performed this task, we recorded the… CONTINUE READING
