Perseveration error


In cognitive psychology, the perseveration error is a behavioral pattern that happens when a person repeats a particular behavior even after receiving feedback that the initial behavior is incorrect (Reisberg, 2018). Lesions in the frontal lobe can cause this behavior (Damasio, 1994).
