Paper by Lindsay Conner, Dr. Lighthall, and co-authors in Brain and Cognition

In their new publication in Brain and Cognition, AD&D Lab Ph.D. student, Lindsay Conner and Dr. Lighthall, in collaboration with University of Florida co-authors Natalie Ebner (Professor of Psychology) and Marilyn Horta (Postdoctoral Fellow), present a novel fMRI task for isolating effects of memory processes on value mechanisms. Findings from the study demonstrate that neural correlates of value encoding are similarly engaged during value retrieval, but value retrieval is associated with increased engagement of the select fronto-parietal and salience regions.
