The curious brain: behavioural and neural mechanisms of spatial updating and reward surprise

Abstract:

In an ever-changing environment, organisms learn about non-random events and use that information to form predictive models to facilitate the processing of expected stimuli or planned actions and their outcomes. Predictions about stimuli enable for an efficient and appropriate response and predictions about action outcomes determine the value and therefore likelihood of repetition of that action. In primate brains, these models have been described in the framework of spatial attention and ...
