Task-Switching, Emotional Motivation, and Reward

Task-Switching, Emotional Motivation, and Reward: “Task-switching is a common cognitive task associated with attention and cognitive control. In this very interesting study, researchers examined what brain areas were associated with good task switching ability. Surprisingly, the most highly correlated area for efficient task switching was the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, a region implicated in emotional and social motivation and reward.”
