Successful realization of planned actions requires the brain to encode intentions over delays. Previous research has indicated that several regions in the rostral or anterior prefrontal cortex (PFC) encode delayed intentions. However, different processes may encode the same future task depending on task load during the delay. This difference may depend on the computational resources available when the delay is occupied with an ongoing task and when it is task-free. Here we directly investigated… CONTINUE READING
