This chapter illustrates model-based approaches to the study of the neural basis of cognitive control. It presents recent studies that investigate whether the predictive information theoretic models provide a good index of cortical excitability (CSE) in simple choice reaction-time tasks, whether the brain can be used to explain neural responses related to the learning of contextual uncertainty, and whether one can apply a model-based approach to predict electrophysiological response related to contextual surprise.

Keywords:   model-based approaches, cognitive control, predictive information, cortical excitability, reaction-time tasks, neural responses, contextual uncertainty, surprise
