Neuron 51:381-90. 2006..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...
- Human insula activation reflects risk prediction errors as well as riskKerstin Preuschoff
Computation and Neural Systems Program and Division of Humanities and Social Sciences, Caltech, Pasadena, California 91125, USA
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...
