To adapt behavior to a changing environment, one must monitor outcomes of executed actions and adjust subsequent actions accordingly. Involvement of the medial frontal cortex in performance monitoring has been suggested, but little is known about neural processes that link performance monitoring to performance adjustment. Here, we recorded from neurons in the medial prefrontal cortex of monkeys learning arbitrary action-outcome contingencies. Some cells preferentially responded to positive… CONTINUE READING
