‘Explorers’ Use Uncertainty and Specific Area of Brain - New Paper in Neuron by Prof. David Badre and Prof. Michael Frank

CLPS Professors David Badre and Michael Frank have collaborated on a new paper in Neuron.

As they try to find the best reward among options, some people explore based on how uncertain they are about the outcome of the options.  Those who employ that thought process, unlike people who use other strategies, uniquely harness the computational power of the rostrolateral prefrontal cortex.
