Diminished Anticipatory and Consummatory Pleasure in Dysphoria: Evidence From an Experience Sampling Study
The results showed that dysphoric individuals reported less state anticipatory and consummatory pleasure compared with non-dysphoric individuals, and significant time-lagged associations between anticipatory pleasure and follow-up consumMatory pleasure were found in the whole sample, after adjustment for current PA.
Anticipatory and consummatory pleasure: validation study of the italian version of the Temporal Experience of Pleasure Scale
Results 5 factors which explained 47.7% of the total variance has been found. On the basis of the item content analysis the factors could be labelled as “Anticipatory pleasure”, “Contextual
Further validation of the ACIPS as a measure of social hedonic response
Validation of the Chinese version of the Anticipatory and Consummatory Interpersonal Pleasure Scale.
The findings suggest that the Chinese translation of the ACIPS is a reliable, valid measure that can be used to assess individual differences in the capacity to experience social and interpersonal pleasure in Chinese individuals.
Factor Structure and Construct Validity of the Temporal Experience of Pleasure Scales
Mixed evidence for convergent–divergent validity was obtained, in terms of relationships between the TEPS and measures of anhedonia, approach-motivation, and positive emotion, in two previously unexamined multiethnic samples.
Trait Anticipatory Pleasure Predicts Effort Expenditure for Reward
Results showed that both anticipatory pleasure and a well-known trait measure of reward motivation predicted effort-expenditure for rewards when the probability of being rewarded was relatively low, and against expectations, consummatory pleasure was unrelated to induced pleasant affect.
Anticipatory and Consummatory Pleasure and Displeasure in Major Depressive Disorder: An Experience Sampling Study
The results are the first to provide evidence that, across both anticipatory and consummatory phases, individuals with MDD experience blunted pleasure and elevated displeasure for daily activities.


Hedonic deficit in anhedonia : support for the role of approach motivation
Preadaptation and the puzzles and properties of pleasure.
Sensory pleasures derive primarily from the contact senses that cover the body surface and the body apertures. It is proposed that, by the processes of preadaptation and increased accessibility, the
Assessing Anhedonia in Psychiatric Patients: The Pleasure Scale
In two studies of depressed, manic, schizophrenic, and normal subjects, a scale for measuring the intensity of subjects' pleasureable responses to normally emjoyable situations (the Pleasure Scale)
Pleasures and subjective well‐being
In two daily diary studies we examined the moderating role of sensation seeking in the patterns of relations between physical pleasure and life satisfaction. In study 1 (a 52‐day daily diary study),
Neurobiology of the structure of personality: Dopamine, facilitation of incentive motivation, and extraversion
The animal evidence suggests that there are three neurodevelopmental sources of individual differences in dopamine: genetic, "experiences-expectant," and "experience-dependent." Individual differences in serotonin promote variation in the heterosynaptic plasticity that enhances the connection between incentive context and incentive motivation and behavior.
Behavioral inhibition, behavioral activation, and affective responses to impending reward and punishment: The BIS/BAS Scales
J. A. Gray (1981, 1982) holds that 2 general motivational systems underlie behavior and affect: a behavioral inhibition system (BIS) and a behavioral activation system (BAS). Self-report scales to
Development and validation of brief measures of positive and negative affect: the PANAS scales.
Two 10-item mood scales that comprise the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS) are developed and are shown to be highly internally consistent, largely uncorrelated, and stable at appropriate levels over a 2-month time period.
