Newswise: Calculated Surprise Leads to Groundbreaking Discovery in Cognitive Control Research

Calculated Surprise Leads to Groundbreaking Discovery in Cognitive Control Research

Florida Atlantic University

To better understand how motivational control processes help maximize performance when faced with task challenges, researchers used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and provide fascinating insights into the role of the dorsal anterior cingulate cortex (dACC) as a component network of brain regions that support motivated behavior. They have unified conflicting findings by discovering that the single mechanism of surprise best accounts for activity in dACC during a task requiring motivated control.

Influential Electrons? Physicists Uncover a Quantum Relationship

New York University

A team of physicists has mapped how electron energies vary from region to region in a particular quantum state with unprecedented clarity. This understanding reveals an underlying mechanism by which electrons influence one another, termed quantum “hybridization,” that had been invisible in previous experiments.
