Explaining away repetition effects via predictive coding

Cogn Neurosci. 2012;3(3-4):239-40. doi: 10.1080/17588928.2012.689960.

Abstract

Abstract Gotts, Chow and Martin summarize Predictive Coding models in which repetition-related decreases in neural activity reflect an "Explaining Away" of stimulus-driven neural activity. Here we elaborate the subtleties of testing such models, particularly with fMRI.
