Sci Rep. 2017 06 07;7(1):2916 Authors: Luft CDB, Zioga I, Banissy MJ, Bhattacharya J Abstract We solve problems by applying previously learned rules. The dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) plays a pivotal role in automating this process of rule induction. Despite its usual efficiency, this process fails when we encounter new problems in which past experience leads to a mental rut. Learned rules could therefore act as constraints which need to be removed in order to change the problem representation for producing the solution. We investigated ... read more
