Credit: CC0 Public Domain People with schizophrenia have a hard time integrating information about a reward—the size of the reward and the probability of receiving it—when assessing its value, according to a study in Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging. The inability to integrate the two factors correlated with more severe motivational deficits, suggesting that […]Continue Reading ...
NIH-funded study sheds new light on brain circuits related to affective and social dysfunction A new study in rodents has shown that the brain’s cerebellum–known to play a role in motor coordination–also helps control the brain’s reward circuitry. Researchers found a direct neural connection from the cerebellum to the ventral tegmental area (VTA) of the […]Continue Reading ...
A novel gut-to-brain neural circuit establishes the vagus nerve as an essential component of the brain system that regulates reward and motivation, according to research conducted at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and published September 20 in the journal Cell. The study provides a concrete link between visceral organs and brain function, […]Continue Reading ...
Credit score: CC0 Public Area If it is the concept that makes a present rely, here is a concept that may make your reward rely further: Get slightly one thing for your self. Analysis revealed this month within the magazine Character and Social Psychology Bulletin by means of Evan Polman, advertising and marketing professor on […]Continue Reading ...
Using light-sensitive proteins, researchers study the brain’s reward memory response In new pre-clinical research, scientists at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM), led by Scott Thompson, PhD, Professor of Physiology, have identified changes in brain activity linked to the pleasure and reward system. The research, published in the journal, Nature, provides news insights […]Continue Reading ...
May 21, 2018 Stimulating the brain to alter its intrinsic reward system shows promise in the treatment of obesity, according to results presented in Barcelona at the European Society of Endocrinology annual meeting, ECE 2018. The technique has yielded positive results after just a single treatment session, revealing its potential to become a safer alternative […]Continue Reading ...
