Damage in the orbitofrontal cortex impairs the ability to switch behaviors when their outcomes change, but the cause of these deficits remained unknown. In this issue of Neuron, Walton et al. demonstrate a key role of the primate orbitofrontal cortex in disambiguating the relationship between multiple choices and their outcomes.
