Very excited about Niloufar Razmi’s preprint showing how latent state dynamics can explain behavioral and neural hallmarks of learning rate adjustment.
Recent work with Rasmus Bruckner and Michael Frank showing how outcome-locked EEG activity relates to learning has been published in eLife!
The Learning Memory & Decision Lab welcomes Tiantian Li who joins us as our first full time lab manager and research assistant. Tiantian completed her undergraduate studies at Boston University, where she explored the intersection of neuroscience and economics in the Cognition and Decision lab. Welcome Tiantian!!!
New paper in the Journal of Neuroscience with Yin Li, Joe Kable, and Josh Gold characterizing the activity of single neurons in the cingulate cortex of monkeys performing a changepoint task: http://www.jneurosci.org/content/early/2019/06/19/JNEUROSCI.0159-19.2019
Check out our new preprint (with Michael Frank and Rasmus Bruckner) on biorxiv clarifying the link between the P300 EEG response and learning: Statistical context dictates the relationship between feedback-related EEG signals and learning
A new paper with Joe McGuire, Harrison Ritz and Joe Kable shows how representations in OFC and anterior temporal lobe transition more rapidly during periods of environmental change that require rapid learning. Could this be the brains way of partitioning information across contexts? Hopefully we will find out soon…
