Dynamic changes in brain regions active while learning novel visual concepts were examined in humans using functional magnetic resonance imaging. Participants learned to distinguish between exemplars of two categories, formed as distortions of different unseen prototype stimuli. Regions of the right hemisphere (dorsolateral prefrontal and inferior parietal areas) were active early in learning and throughout task performance, whereas homologous portions of the left hemisphere were active only in… CONTINUE READING
