Aldo Genovesio : Role of prefrontal cortex in decision making: across-task interference effects in a duration discrimination task and prediction of others choices in a social interactive task.

Tuesday, 8 September, 2015 - 09:30 to 11:00
My talk will focus on two neurophysiological studies of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex of Macaque Monkeys. In the first part I will present a schematic model of decision making in a duration discrimination task formulated by combining neural and behavioral analyses. The model describes how the comparison between the duration of two stimuli presented in sequence depends on intermediate neural computation mechanisms based on their order of presentation and how this computation could generate across-task interference effects on the performance in other contexts.
