Separating Value from Choice: Delay Discounting Activity in the Lateral Intraparietal Area
Journal of Neuroscience
We recorded the activity of neurons in the lateral intraparietal area while monkeys performed an intertemporal choice task for rewards differing in delay to reinforcement. ...
These findings show that in addition to information about gains, parietal cortex also incorporates information about delay into a precise physiological correlate of economic value functions, independent ...
The intertemporal choice task was conducted under four different conditions of delayed reward magnitude (0.143, 0.163, 0.196, and 0.260 ml) , randomized across sessions, to quantify the discount function ...
