Brand new Book. They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery. This fascinating and instructive book was designed as a sequel or supplement to the splendid collection of grammatical items first published in Ruge Rules. Ferdinand E.
Ruge was for many years a teacher of English at St. Albans School, in Washington, DC. Daniel Hoyt Daniels was a student in Mr.
Ruge's classes throughout his sophomore, junior and senior years, and was "profoundly affected" by Mr. Ruge and his uncompromising insistence upon rhetorical excellence.

We found that instructed RL is partly supported by similar regions as feedback-driven RL, including lateral orbitofrontal cortex lOFC and anterior dorsal caudate. Encoding-related activation in both regions determined resilience against response competition during subsequent memory-based reversal implementation. Different from feedback-driven RL, instruction-based RL relied heavily on the generic fronto-parietal cognitive control network--not for encoding but for reversal-related control processes during memory-based implementation.
