    • Age Differences in Striatal Delay Sensitivity during Intertemporal Choice in Healthy Adults. 

      Samanez-Larkin, Gregory Russell; Mata, R; Radu, PT; Ballard, IC; Carstensen, LL; McClure, SM (Front Neurosci, 2011)
      Intertemporal choices are a ubiquitous class of decisions that involve selecting between outcomes available at different times in the future. We investigated the neural systems supporting intertemporal decisions in healthy ...
    • Cortical Brain Activity Reflecting Attentional Biasing Toward Reward-Predicting Cues Covaries with Economic Decision-Making Performance. 

      Appelbaum, Lawrence Gregory; Huettel, Scott; San Martín, R; Woldorff, Marty G (Cereb Cortex, 2016-01)
      Adaptive choice behavior depends critically on identifying and learning from outcome-predicting cues. We hypothesized that attention may be preferentially directed toward certain outcome-predicting cues. We studied this ...
    • Cortical neurons multiplex reward-related signals along with sensory and motor information. 

      Byun, YW; Lebedev, Mikhail A; Nicolelis, Miguel A; Pedersen, CE; Ramakrishnan, A; Rand, K (Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2017-06-13)
      Rewards are known to influence neural activity associated with both motor preparation and execution. This influence can be exerted directly upon the primary motor (M1) and somatosensory (S1) cortical areas via the projections ...
    • Cumulative stress in childhood is associated with blunted reward-related brain activity in adulthood. 

      Albert, D; Carré, JM; Dodge, Kenneth A; Hanson, Jamie L; Hariri, Ahmad; Iselin, AM (Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci, 2016-03)
      Early life stress (ELS) is strongly associated with negative outcomes in adulthood, including reduced motivation and increased negative mood. The mechanisms mediating these relations, however, are poorly understood. We examined ...
    • Domain-General Affect: Neural Mechanisms and Clinical Implications 

      Winecoff, Amy Aileen (2014)
      Emotions guide the way individuals interact with the world, influencing nearly every psychological process from attention, to learning, to metacognition. Constructionist models of emotion posit that emotions arise out of ...
    • Neural Circuitry of Social Valuation 

      Smith, David Victor (2012)
      Few aspects of human cognition are more personal than the choices we make. Our decisions — from the mundane to the impossibly complex — continually shape the courses of our lives. In recent years, researchers ...
    • Neurobiology of Learning and Valuation 

      Heilbronner, Sarah Rachel (2012)
      An animal's ability to make adaptive choices is key to its fitness. Thus, the process of determining options, making a decision, evaluating outcomes, and learning from those outcomes to adjust future behavior is a central ...
    • Neurophysiology and Neuropharmacology of Decisions 

      Long, Arwen (2009)
      Negotiating the complex decisions that we encounter daily requires coordinated neu- ronal activity. The enormous variety of decisions we make, the intrinsic complexity of the situations we encounter, and the extraordinary ...
    • Prosocial Reward Learning in Children and Adolescents. 

      Huettel, Scott; Kwak, Youngbin (Front Psychol, 2016)
      Adolescence is a period of increased sensitivity to social contexts. To evaluate how social context sensitivity changes over development-and influences reward learning-we investigated how children and adolescents perceive ...
    • The Neurophysiology of Social Decision Making 

      Klein, Jeffrey Thomas (2010)
      The ultimate goal of the nervous systems of all animals is conceptually simple: Manipulate the external environment to maximize one's own survival and reproduction. The myriad means animals employ in pursuit of this goal ...
    • Wages of Righteousness: The Economy of Heaven in the Gospel According to Matthew 

      Eubank, Nathan (2012)
      In comparison to Mark and Luke, Matthew's Gospel contains a striking preponderance of economic imagery, especially in passages dealing with sin, righteousness, and divine recompense. This cluster of economic terms is found ...
