Dopamine

At the intersection of reward and action

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A new paper reports that dopaminergic neurons initially responded optimistically in rats given free choice between two rewards, as though the animal had chosen the better reward, even on trials when it failed to do so. These findings suggest that current computational theories of dopaminergic function may need to be revised.
