Article of the Week
Study suggests prediction error signaling affects decision making, worry in anxiety
Researchers at the NIMH found a reduced correlation between prediction error and activity within the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, ventral striatum and other structures associated with decision making during feedback among participants with anxiety. Additionally, participants with anxiety exhibited reduced correlation between punishment prediction errors — but not reward prediction errors — and activity within the left and right lentiform nucleus/putamen. Authors suggest that the decision-making deficits observed in these patients are the result of a failure to appropriately represent prediction error.
