Expected value and sensitivity to punishment modulate insular cortex activity during risky decision making
TLDR
Findings suggest that the right posterior insula is involved in tracking the EV of a risky option during decision making, and the involvement of the insula when making risky decisions also appears to be influenced by inter-individual differences in sensitivity to punishment.
Posterior fronto‐medial atrophy reflects decreased loss aversion, but not executive impairment, in alcohol use disorder
TLDR
Assessing whether lower loss aversion in AUD patients compared with 19 healthy controls is explained by their differential executive or working‐memory performance and investigating its neural basis in terms of grey matter density and cortical thickness via voxel‐ and surface‐based morphometry highlight possible directions for addressing AUD patients' high relapse rate.
The Psychological and Neural Basis of Loss Aversion
Loss aversion is a central element of prospect theory, the dominant theory of decision making under uncertainty for the past four decades, and refers to the overweighting of potential losses relative
Increased decision latency in alcohol use disorder reflects altered resting-state synchrony in the anterior salience network
TLDR
Novel insights are provided into the intrinsic neural mechanisms underlying increased decision latency in AUD, involving decreased temporal synchronicity in networks promoting executive control by behaviourally relevant stimuli.
EFFECTS OF LOSS AVERSION ON THE EVALUATION OF DECISION OUTCOMES
TLDR
It is concluded that individual differences in loss aversion exert robust effects on the neural evaluation of decision outcomes and is represented in feedback ERP components, under the condition that decision outcomes had real monetary consequences for the decision makers.
The alcoholic brain: neural bases of impaired reward-based decision-making in alcohol use disorders
TLDR
MRI data highlight abnormal fronto-striatal connectivity as a candidate neurobiological marker of impaired choice in AUDs, and further studies are needed, however, to unveil its implications in the multiple facets of decision-making.
Electrocortical correlates of value-based decisions
TLDR
The current thesis demonstrated the explicit representation of willingness-to-pay within neural activity recorded by means of EEG, and low and high subjective value was encoded by separate and lateralised brain responses in a coarse manner, in contrast to the linear encoding of subjective value within a single brain response.
Arbitration between insula and temporoparietal junction subserves framing-induced boosts in generosity during social discounting
TLDR
While the temporoparietal junction and the ventromedial prefrontal cortex subserved generosity in the gain frame, the insular cortex was selectively recruited during generous choices in the loss frame, providing support for a network-model according to which TPJ and insula differentially promote generosity by modulating value signals in the VMPFC in a frame-dependent fashion.

The Functional and Structural Neural Basis of Individual Differences in Loss Aversion
TLDR
It is concluded that outcome anticipation and ensuing loss aversion involve multiple neural systems, showing functional and structural individual variability directly related to the actual financial outcomes of choices.
Understanding Others' Regret: A fMRI Study
TLDR
It is shown that observing the regretful outcomes of someone else's choices activates the same regions that are activated during a first-person experience of regret, i.e. the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, anterior cingulate cortex and hippocampus.
Your Resting Brain CAREs about Your Risky Behavior
TLDR
The results suggest that individual differences in attitudes toward risk-taking are reflected in the brain's functional architecture and may have implications for engaging in real-world risky behaviors.
Learning sculpts the spontaneous activity of the resting human brain
TLDR
It is demonstrated that visual perceptual learning, an example of adult neural plasticity, modifies the resting covariance structure of spontaneous activity between networks engaged by the task, concluding that functional connectivity serves a dynamic role in brain function, supporting the consolidation of previous experience.
The Role of the Medial Frontal Cortex in Cognitive Control
TLDR
New findings in cognitive neuroscience concerning cortical interactions that subserve the recruitment and implementation of cognitive control are evaluated, suggesting that monitoring-related pMFC activity serves as a signal that engages regulatory processes in the LPFC to implement performance adjustments.
Neuromodulation of reward‐based learning and decision making in human aging
TLDR
Evidence suggesting that deficits in neuromodulation contribute to older adults’ behavioral disadvantages in learning and decision making is focused on, which suggests that dopamine and serotonin serve opponent roles in regulating the balance between approach behavior and inhibitory control.
Tonic Activity Level in the Right Prefrontal Cortex Predicts Individuals' Risk Taking
TLDR
This finding demonstrates that neural characteristics that are stable over time can predict a highly complex behavior such as risk-taking behavior and suggests that hypoactivity in the right prefrontal cortex might serve as a dispositional indicator of lower regulatory abilities, which is expressed in greater risk- taking behavior.
