This chapter considers the functional contributions of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (VMPFC), the adjacent lateral orbital frontal cortex (OFC), and the frontal polar cortex (FPC) to reinforcement learning and value-based choice. It presents the results of the experiments investigating VMPFC, OFC, and FPC function in humans and macaque monkeys.

Keywords:   ventromedial prefrontal cortex, VMPFC, orbital frontal cortex, OFC, frontal polar cortex, FPC, reinforcement learning, value-based choice
