    Activity patterns of serotonin neurons underlying cognitive flexibility

    Sara Matias et al.
    Recordings from serotonin-producing neurons in the brain reveal that these neurons are highly activated by sudden changes in previously familiar environments, potentially explaining why serotonin is important for learning to adapt to such changes.

    Dopaminergic modulation of the exploration/exploitation trade-off in human decision-making

    Karima Chakroun et al.
    Dopamine attenuates exploration during decision-making via a reduction of neural tracking of uncertainty.

    Critical role for the mediodorsal thalamus in permitting rapid reward-guided updating in stochastic reward environments

    Subhojit Chakraborty et al.
    In monkeys, the integrity of the magnocellular subdivision of mediodorsal thalamus is important when using recent rewarded choices to promote persistence with a recently sampled choice during changing or uncertain reward guided-learning and decision-making tasks.

    Increased influence of prior choices on perceptual decisions in autism

    Helen Feigin et al.
    Perceptual decisions are influenced by preceding choices to a larger extent in individuals with autism spectrum disorder, such that they demonstrate a greater consistency bias.

    Ultrastructural comparison of dendritic spine morphology preserved with cryo and chemical fixation

    Hiromi Tamada et al.
    Cryo preservation of brain tissue reveals dendritic spines with thinner necks compared to those prepared with chemical fixation.

    Attenuation of dopamine-modulated prefrontal value signals underlies probabilistic reward learning deficits in old age

    Lieke de Boer et al.
    Attenuated anticipatory activity in ventromedial prefrontal cortex is modulated by dopamine D1 receptor density in nucleus accumbens, and accounts for impaired probabilistic reward learning in older adults.

    Metacontrol of decision-making strategies in human aging

    Florian Bolenz et al.
    Older adults show reduced adaptation of decision-making strategies to dynamically changing situational demands.

    Lapses in perceptual decisions reflect exploration

    Sashank Pisupati et al.
    During perceptual decision-making, some errors on easy decisions (lapses) are not simply mistakes, but instead reflect strategic decisions to explore actions associated with uncertain rewards.

    Humans treat unreliable filled-in percepts as more real than veridical ones

    Benedikt V Ehinger et al.
    In a forced decision between two identical percepts, subjects preferentially rely on inferred internally generated over veridically seen percepts.

    The NKCC1 antagonist bumetanide mitigates interneuronopathy associated with ethanol exposure in utero

    Alexander GJ Skorput et al.
    Prenatal ethanol exposure results in aberrant tangential migration by altering NKCC1-mediated chloride homeostasis that can be mitigated by bumetanide.
