How the Brain Learns from Mistakes
Researchers have identified the individual neurons that may underlie our brain’s ability to monitor our behavior, catch and correct the mistakes we make. This work provides rare recordings of individual neurons located deep within the human brain and has implications for psychiatric diseases like obsessive-compulsive disorder.
The work was a collaboration between the laboratories of Ralph Adolphs, director of the Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute for Neuroscience Brain Imaging Center at Caltech, and Ueli Rutishauser at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
