Elaborative feedback: Engaging reward and task-relevant brain regions promotes learning in pseudoword reading aloud

Published in:┬áCognitive, Affective, & Behavioral Neuroscience, Volume 18, Issue 1, 68-87 Abstract “Although much is known about the cognitive and neural basis of establishing letter-sound mappings in learning word forms, relatively little is known about what makes for the most effective feedback during this process. We sought to determine the neural basis by which elaborative feedback (EF), which contains both reward-related and content-specific information, may be more helpful than feedback containing only one kind of information (simple positive feedback, PF) or the other (content feedback, CF) in learning orthography-phonology (spelling-sound) mappings for novel letter strings. Compared to CF, EF activated… Read More
