    Bianca C Wittmann
    Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, University College London, 12 Queen Square, London WC1N3BG, UK
    Neuron 58:967-73. 2008
    ..These data indicate that the brain uses perceptual novelty to approximate choice uncertainty in decision making, which in certain contexts gives rise to a newly identified and quantifiable source of human irrationality...

    Bianca C Wittmann
    Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, University College London, London, UK
    Learn Mem 18:296-300. 2011
    ..These behavioral specifications are relevant for the functional interpretation of how reward-related activation of the SN/VTA, and more generally dopaminergic neuromodulation, contribute to long-term memory...

    Bianca C Wittmann
    Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, Institute of Neurology, University College London, 12 Queen Square, London, UK
    Neuroimage 38:194-202. 2007
    ..In more general terms, the data suggest that dopaminergic processing of novelty might be important in driving exploration of new environments...

    Bianca C Wittmann
    Department of Neurology II and, Centre for Advanced Imaging, Otto von Guericke University, Leipziger Str 44, 39120 Magdeburg, Germany
    Neuron 45:459-67. 2005
    ..These data are consistent with the hypothesis that activation of dopaminergic midbrain regions enhances hippocampus-dependent memory formation, possibly by enhancing consolidation...
