Optimal decision making in the cortico-basal-ganglia circuit (in press)

Rafal Bogacz, Optimal decision making in the cortico-basal-ganglia circuit (in press). Chapter in An Introduction to Model-Based Cognitive Neuroscience. March 2013. No electronic version available.

Abstract

This chapter presents a model assuming that during decision making the cortico-basal-ganglia circuit computes probabilities that considered alternatives are correct, according to Bayesa?? theorem. The model suggests how the equation of Bayesa?? theorem is mapped onto the functional anatomy of a circuit involving the cortex, basal ganglia and thalamus. The chapter also describes the relationship of the model to other models of decision making and experimental data.
