New Study Reveals How the Brain Says ‘Oops!’
Researchers identified a group of neurons in the frontal lobe that enables flexibility to learn new skills and the focus to develop sophisticated skills. The brain uses the same group of neurons for performance feedback in a variety of situations. Researchers from Cedars-Sinai’s Center for Neural Science and Medicine and Department of Neurosurgery have uncovered how signals from a group of neurons in the brain’s frontal lobe simultaneously give humans the flexibility to learn new tasks—and the focus to develop highly specific skills.
