Neuroscience of Rule-Guided Behavior

Silvia A. Bunge and Jonathan D. Wallis

Abstract

A fundamental question facing neuroscience is how complex behavior is controlled. This book brings together a number of leading cognitive and systems neuroscientists focusing on this question. Presenting a wide range of methods and approaches, these researchers provide novel insights into the neuronal mechanisms that support rule-guided behavior.

Keywords: executive function, cognitive control, goal-directed behavior, prefrontal cortex
