Pattern association in the brain: amygdala and orbitofrontal cortex

(p.136) Chapter 7 Pattern association in the brain: amygdala and orbitofrontal cortex
Neural Networks and Brain Function

This chapter examines the location of pattern association neural networks in the brain, their role in the systems-level operation of the brain, and evidence on how they actually operate in the brain. It evaluates evidence suggesting that pattern association is involved in learning associations between sensory representation and reward or punishment and investigates the role of pattern association in backprojections in the cerebral cortex. It also describes pattern association within the hippocampus.

Keywords:   pattern association, neural networks, brain, learning associations, sensory representation, reward or punishment, backprojections, cerebral cortex, hippocampus
