WHAT IS ACTUALLY HAPPEN INSIDE THE BRAIN?? 8. Prefrontal cortex New behavior coming Prefrontal stratium midbrain add dopamine (midbrain) stratium globus pallidus prefontal 9. After we repeat behavior, sensorimotor and stratium strongly engaged Sensorimotor stratium add dopamine (midbrain) thalamus sensorimotor 10. The new behavior becomes habit as we repeat over and over again. Midbrain (dopamine to remember) infralimbic stratium Infralimbic : control us engage in habit, It stored in infralimbic, and ingrained routines 11. Howcanwebreakourownbadhabit?
