Independent Neural Computation of Value from Other People's Confidence
Daniel Campbell-Meiklejohn, Arndis Simonsen, Chris D. Frith, Nathaniel D. Daw
Journal of Neuroscience 9 December 2016, 4490-15; DOI: 10.1523/JNEUROSCI.4490-15.2016 

This material contains:

1. A Bayesian inference solution for integrating personal information, social information and the uncertainty accompanying social information for computing the value of choices during decision-making (as applied to the Urn Task). Neural correlates of value derived using this solution are also reported. 

2. A script for running simulations of this model using python and for generating value computations for the Urn task

3. Whole brain coordinates of neural activations mentioned in our article (which itself focussed on ventromedial prefrontal cortex).
