Anhedonia is characterized by a reduced capacity to experience pleasure in response to rewarding stimuli and has been considered a possible candidate endophenotype in depression and schizophrenia. However, it is still not well understood whether these reward deficits are confined to anticipatory and/or to consummatory experiences of pleasure. In the present(More)
How do we recognize ourselves as the agents of our actions? Do we use the same error detection mechanisms to monitor self-generated vs. externally imposed actions? Using event-related brain potentials (ERPs), we identified two different error-monitoring loops involved in providing a coherent sense of the agency of our actions. In the first ERP experiment,(More)
A long-standing debate in psychology and cognitive neuroscience concerns the way in which unattended information is processed and influences goal-directed behavior. Although selective attention allows us to filter out task-irrelevant information, there is a substantial number of unattended, yet relevant, events that must be evaluated in a flexible manner so(More)
The ability to detect and use information from errors is essential during the acquisition of new skills. There is now a wealth of evidence about the brain mechanisms involved in error processing. However, the extent to which those mechanisms are engaged during the acquisition of new motor skills remains elusive. Here we examined rhythm synchronization(More)
Saccharomyces cerevisiae mutants bearing mutations at the cyc4 locus are partially deficient in cytochrome synthesis. Although the mutation is not in the structural gene for delta-aminolevulinic acid (Alv) synthase, the mutants are deficient in Alv synthesis in vivo as indicated by abnormally low intracellular Alv concentrations. The cyc4 mutation causes(More)
The recessive, nuclear gene mutation glc1, which causes glycogen deficiency in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is highly pleiotropic. Studies of the inheritance of glc1 revealed two classes of phenotypic characteristics: I. Traits invariably associated with the mutant gene and II. Traits whose expressions require the presence of glc1 and one or more additional(More)
When interacting in error-prone environments, humans display different tolerances to changing their decisions when faced with erroneous feedback information. Here, we investigated whether these individual differences in error tolerance (ET) were reflected in neurophysiological mechanisms indexing specific motivational states related to feedback monitoring.(More)
