New preprint:'Model-based fMRI reveals co-existing specific and generalized concept representations'
Cait has a new preprint available co-authored by her post-doc advisor Dasa Zeithamova and an undergraduate research assistant in the bamlab, Takako Iwashita. In it, they show that categories can be represented both by individual exemplars and abstract prototypes within the same task. Both representations can form in parallel across distinct regions of the brain, with inferior prefrontal and lateral parietal regions representing exemplars, and ventromedial prefrontal cortex and anterior hippocampus representing prototypes.
