Task-specific neural processes underlying conflict resolution during cognitive control

Lab Results talk by Yuchen Xiao

Wed Jan 19th, 9:30am

Everyday decisions require integrating sensory cues and task demands while resolving conflict in goals and cues (e.g., “should I go for a run or stay home and watch a movie?”). The ability to exert cognitive control during decision-making plays a fundamental role in our daily activities, as demonstrated by the debilitating effects of malfunction in control networks. Predominant theories of cognitive control posit universal mechanisms of conflict resolution. The results of the current study challenge this dogma by demonstrating that the neural circuits involved in orchestrating cognitive control are specific to the combination of inputs and outputs in each task.
