Title

Thalamocortical interactions involving the mediodorsal thalamus during learning and decision-making in mammals

Abstract

Anatomical evidence in mammals shows that the mediodorsal thalamus (MD) is a key component within wider frontal thalamocortical networks. Accordingly, damage to, or disruption of MD function impairs specific types of learning and decision-making in humans and animal models. Yet, the underlying mechanisms behind the influence of MD on the frontal cortex during these higher order cognitive processes remain unknown. In this talk, I will discuss behavioural and cognitive evidence from lesion work, neuroimaging, and neurophysiology experiments that helps to decipher the influence of the MD on higher cognitive processes governed by the frontal cortex.
