Encoding of reward and space during a working memory task in the orbitofrontal cortex and anterior cingulate sulcus.

Abstract

Several lines of research indicate that emotional and motivational information may be useful in guiding the allocation of attentional resources. Two areas of the frontal lobe that are particularly implicated in the encoding of motivational information are the orbital prefrontal cortex (PFo) and the dorsomedial region of prefrontal cortex, specifically the… (More)
