The rodent orbitofrontal cortex gets time and direction

Neuron. 2006 Aug 17;51(4):395-7. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2006.08.001.


The orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) helps direct decision making through its flexible coding of reward and economic value. In this issue of Neuron, papers by Roesch et al. and Feierstein et al. demonstrate the importance of temporal and spatial features to processing in the rodent OFC.
