    ..Such associations would mean that subsequent reductions in serotonin are more likely to provoke depressed mood and hence trigger an episode of depression...

    ..These data help to reconcile conflicting findings from previous studies by showing that distinct regions of the striatum exhibit dissociable responses to punishment during reversal learning...

    ..in J Neurosci 29:11993-11999, 2009) approaches have, however, further specified this role by showing that serotonin is critical for punishment-induced inhibition...

    Sanne de Wit
    Behavioral and Clinical Neuroscience Institute, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
    Psychopharmacology (Berl) 219:621-31. 2012
    ..Recent animal studies have implicated dopamine in the reinforcement of stimulus-response habits, as well as in flexible, goal-directed action. However, the role of dopamine in human action control is still not well understood...
