Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Instructions are an inextricable, yet poorly understood aspect of modern human life. In this paper we propose that instruction implementation and following can be understood as fast Hebbian learning in prefrontal cortex, which trains slower pathways (e.g., cortical-basal ganglia pathways). We present a computational model of instruction following that is used to simulate key behavioral and neuroimaging data on instruction following. We discuss the relationship between our model and other models of instruction following, the predictions derived from it, and directions for future investigation.
