Single-trial inhibition of anterior cingulate disrupts model-based reinforcement learning in a two-step secision task

Abstract:

The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) is implicated in learning the value of actions, and thus in allowing past outcomes to influence the current choice. However, it is not clear whether or how it contributes to the two major ways such learning is thought to happen: model-based mechanisms that learn action-state predictions and use these to infer action values; or model-free mechanisms which learn action values directly through reward prediction errors. Having confirmed, using a classical proba...
