Neural correlates of decision thresholds in the human subthalamic nucleus

Abstract:

If humans are faced with difficult choices when making decisions, the ability to slow down responses becomes critical in order to avoid suboptimal choices. Current models of decision making assume that the subthalamic nucleus (STN) mediates this function by elevating decision thresholds, thereby requiring more evidence to be accumulated before responding [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9]. However, direct electrophysiological evidence for the exact role of STN during adjustment of decision thresh...
