Impairments in the rapid reversal learning of stimulus-reward associations, when expected rewards are not obtained or punishers are obtained, are produced by damage to the orbitofrontal cortex; and contribute to the major changes in emotion, personality, and impulsiveness that can be produced by damage to the orbitofrontal cortex. Impairments in the processing of rewards are found, with alterations in food choice and eating, and in the identification of face and voice expressions, which are important for social behavior.

Keywords:   subjective emotion, personality, impulsiveness, anhedonia, non-reward
