A team of scientists has discovered that cooperation between two parts of the brain, the prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus, helps us imagine future outcomes. This allows for better planning and decision making.

Scientists found out, that two parts of the brain—the prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus—work together to help people imagine future outcomes and make better decisions. The prefrontal cortex acts as a simulator that tests possible actions using information stored in the hippocampus.

Human brain

Scientists have discovered that the interaction between the prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus is important for deliberate decision-making, when it is necessary to weigh different options, rather than just reacting quickly. This discovery is important not only for humans, but also for animals, because these mechanisms are the basis of intelligence.

Marcelo Mattar, one of the authors of the study and an associate professor at New York University, said that a better understanding of how the brain works can help treat disorders that affect decision-making.

scientists have studied the human brain

Such discoveries open up new opportunities for brain research and the creation of new methods of treating neurological diseases.
