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?

A

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

B

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

C

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

D

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