The relationship between belief change and brain activity.

(A) Across all stimuli, BOLD signal in orbitofrontal cortex during challenges correlated positively with amount of belief change. (B) Across all stimuli, BOLD signal in dorsomedial prefrontal cortex correlated negatively with amount of belief change. Scatter plots visualize the relationship found in the peak voxels in each region. (C) Stimulus items in order of average belief change.
