Neuroscience: Reevaluating the Role of Orbitofrontal Cortex

Brianna J. Sleezer, Benjamin Yost Hayden

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

A new optogenetic lesion study shows that the orbitofrontal cortex is essential for integrating information about recent rewards — which may either increase or decrease demand for more — with learned preferences to drive behavior.
