Neurophysiological Correlates of Reward Learning
This chapter reviews the neural mechanisms underlying reward learning in primates. It argues that structures involved in learning and reward, particularly midbrain dopamine neurons, appear to calculate the difference between expected and received rewards. This prediction error signal appears to be fundamental to learning and decision making in primates and other mammals.
