Abstract

Ballesta and Padoa-Schioppa show that similar groups of neurons in the primate orbitofrontal cortex engage in choices between goods offered simultaneously or in sequence. Their results suggest that economic decisions rely on mechanisms of circuit inhibition whereby each offer value indirectly inhibits cells encoding the opposite choice outcome.
