Abstract : Noradrenaline participates in the neuromodulation of brain activity to modify the trade-off between exploration and exploitation when sensory contingencies have changed. Accordingly, attentional models of noradrenaline acting on sensory representations have been proposed. In this paper , we explore another possible action of this neuromodulator in the decision making process and report simulation results that illustrate that its role is concerned with different aspects of sensory processing. This is made possible by the extension of a classical model of action selection, to render it able to detect and to adapt to sudden changes in sensory contingencies, which is a major characteristic of autonomous learning.
