Local resource depletion hypothesis as a mechanism for action selection in the brain.

Aneta Brzezicka , Jan Kacper Kamiński , Andrzej Wróbel


As a comment on Kurzban et al.'s opportunity cost model, we propose an alternative view of mental effort and the action selection mechanism in the brain. Our hypothesis utilizes local resource depletion within neuronal networks, which justifies from a neurophysiological perspective why mental fatigue diminishes after switching to a novel task and explains action selection by means of neural competition theory.
