This chapter presents recent findings from single neuron electrophysiology and functional neuroimaging with respect to the role of the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), the lateral prefrontal cortex (LPFC), the orbitofrontal cortex (OFC), and the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (VMPFC) in decision making. These findings are based on decision-making frameworks that highlight several cognitive processes such as the representation of internal states, the determination of outcome value, the adaptive coding of outcome value, the determination of action costs, linking value to action, and the integration or specialization of decision variable representations.

Keywords:   neuron electrophysiology, functional neuroimaging, anterior cingulate cortex, ACC, lateral prefrontal cortex, LPFC, ventromedial prefrontal cortex, VMPFC, decision making, cognitive processes
