Categorical Evidence, Confidence and Urgency during the Integration of Multi-Feature Information
MetadataShow full item record
The present experiment utilized a temporally-extended categorization task to investigate the neural substrates underlying our ability to integrate information over time and across multiple stimulus features. Importantly, the design allowed differentiation of three important decision functions: 1) categorical evidence, 2) decisional confidence (the choice-independent probability that a decision will lead to a desirable state), and 3) urgency (a hypothetical signal representing a growing pressure to produce a behavioral response within each trial). In conjunction with model-based fMRI, the temporal ...
