Abstract

A hallmark of human behavior is the flexibility of cognitive control, which is believed to depend on prefrontal cortex (PFC). Previous work has suggested that specific PFC mechanisms, including active maintenance of rule or goal representations, adaptive gating of these representations, and the top-down biasing of processing in other cortical areas, are… (More)
