a number of active brain areas in the healthy participants during game play, including activation of several large folds within the frontal lobe known to be involved in decision-making. In the smoking group, however, no hotspots of brain activity seemed tied to predictions made by the quantum model. As the model reflects participants' ability to learn from mistakes, the results may illustrate decision-making impairments in the smoking group, the authors noted.

Paradox:

However, if players aren't allowed to know the result of the first coin flip, they rarely make the second gamble. 

When known, the first flip does not sway the choice that follows, but when unknown, it makes all the difference. This paradox does not fit within the framework of classical rei...

Cognitive rigidity

Cognitive rigidity is present in many mental health disorders, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, major depression, and autism spectrum disorder. 

Research shows that cognitive flexibility depends on the network of the frontal lobe and "striatal" brain regions.
