    ..These results suggest that the primary task of the dopaminergic system is to convey signals of upcoming stochastic rewards, such as expected reward and risk, beyond its role in learning, motivation, and salience...

    J Neurosci 28:2745-52. 2008
    ..As such, our findings indicate that our understanding of the neural basis of reward anticipation under uncertainty needs to be expanded to include risk prediction...

    Neuroimage 41:35-44. 2008
    ..We show that the brain adds the signals of ER and risk to form a measure that activates the medial prefrontal cortex, consistent with the role of this brain structure in the evaluation of monetary gambles...

    Computational and Neural Systems, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA 91125, USA
    Ann N Y Acad Sci 1104:135-46. 2007
    ..Evidence is discussed that suggests that the dopaminergic system in the (human and nonhuman) primate brain encodes prediction risk, and that prediction errors are indeed scaled with prediction risk (adaptive encoding)...
