    The article reports on neurological research that has found that a person's brain is programmed to maintain certain memories and suppress others. Brice Kuhl at Stanford University in California and his colleagues used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to measure the brain activity of...

    Dopamine transmission in the prefrontal cortex plays an important role in reward based learning, working memory and attention. Dopamine is thought to be released non-synaptically into the extracellular space and to reach distant receptors through diffusion. This simulation study examines how the...

    Influential neurocomputational models emphasize dopamine (DA) as an electrophysiological and neurochemical correlate of reinforcement learning. However, evidence of a specific causal role of DA receptors in learning has been less forthcoming, especially in humans. Here we combine, in a...
