Single-neuron responses in the human nucleus accumbens during a financial decision-making task

04.06.12 Posted in Human Neurophysiology Studies by

Linking values to actions and evaluating expectations relative to outcomes are both central to reinforcement learning and are thought to underlie financial decision-making. However, neurophysiology studies of these processes in humans remain limited. Here, we recorded the activity of single human nucleus accumbens neurons while subjects performed a gambling task. We show that the nucleus […]
