December 2017: Sabine Peters in Nature Communications!
Heightened striatal activity in adolescents is adaptive for learning. This is what Sabine Peters has demonstrated in her latest paper, published in Nature Communications. In this three-wave longitudinal study with 300 participants aged 8-29, Sabine related striatal activation during feedback learning to better current and future learning performance. This points to adolescence as a unique life phase for increased feedback-learning performance. Congratulations Sabine! The paper can be found here.
