Which of the following best explains how causal uncertainty results in a higher one-shot learning rate according the hypothesis of Lee, O’Doherty, and Shimojo?


The hippocampus switches on the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex so that one-shot learning may occur.


After people become uncertain about cause and effect relationships, they are more likely to strongly focus in order to learn the relationship.


When MRI data is collected, it shows that when participants are certain of cause and effect, incremental learning occurs.


Dissociable memory systems cause an increase in incremental learning which comes about because of trial and error.
