Computations in extraversion

C. Fine, R. J.R. Blair

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey


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.
