Computations in extraversion

C. Fine, R. J.R. Blair

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


We make two suggestions with regard to Depue and Collins's (D and C's) target article. First, regarding the functioning of MOC13, we provide data indicating that, contrary to D and C's apparent position, this structure is not necessary for instrumental conditioning. Second, we suggest that D and C's approach would be advanced by reference to formal computational theory, in particular the work of Grossberg. We suggest that an integration of Grossberg's and D and C's models can provide a more complete account of extraversion.
