The objective of this study was to investigate personality correlates of set‐shifting behaviour using a task sensitive to dopaminergic activity. As expected, set‐shifting behaviour was positively correlated with scores on the Sensitivity to Reward scale, a measure of Gray's impulsivity. Discussion is focused on the relationship between this greater ability for set‐shifting and the proneness to disinhibition. 
Frontostriatal response to set switching is moderated by reward sensitivity.
TLDR
It is proposed that higher BAS activity is associated with a stronger reward to process a better implementation of goal-directed tasks and the diminished processing of secondary cues. Expand
Investigating the dopaminergic basis of extraversion in humans: A multilevel approach.
A recent theory suggests that the agency facet of Extraversion (E) is based on brain dopamine (DA). The paucity of human data relevant to this model is probably due to the lack of widely accessibleExpand
Characterizing individual differences in reward sensitivity from the brain networks involved in response inhibition
TLDR
A pattern of associations suggests that reward sensitivity involves greater motor engagement in the dominant response, more distractibility and reduced processing of salient or unexpected events, which may lead to disinhibited behavior. Expand
Reward network connectivity “at rest” is associated with reward sensitivity in healthy adults: A resting-state fMRI study
TLDR
Analysis of the influence of reward sensitivity on the resting-state functional connectivity between BAS-related areas by correlating the BOLD time series with the scores on the Sensitivity to Reward (SR) scale suggests that reward sensitivity could be associated with different resting- state activity in the mesocortical pathway.

Behavioral activation system modulation on brain activation during appetitive and aversive stimulus processing.
The reinforcement sensitivity theory (RST) proposed the behavioral activation system (BAS) as a neurobehavioral system that is dependent on dopamine-irrigated structures and that mediates theExpand
Reward Sensitivity Modulates Brain Activity in the Prefrontal Cortex, ACC and Striatum during Task Switching
TLDR
Data indicate that BAS sensitivity modulates the neurocognitive processes involved in task switching in a complex manner depending on task demands, and individual differences in motivational dispositions may influence cognitive processing in the absence of reward contingencies. Expand
Inferior frontal cortex activity is modulated by reward sensitivity and performance variability
TLDR
The results suggest that reward sensitivity modulates behavior and brain function during executive control, and with increased activity in right and left IFG for No-go and Infrequent-go stimuli compared with Frequent-go. Expand
Reinforcement sensitivity scales.
Gray's (1970, 1981, 1982) personality theory, currently referred to as the Reinforcement Sensitivity Theory (RST) (Pickering, Diaz and Gray 1995) has defined the existence of three conceptual nervousExpand
Reward sensitivity modulates connectivity among reward brain areas during processing of anticipatory reward cues
TLDR
The results suggest that high reward sensitivity‐related activation in reward brain areas may result from associated modulatory effects of other brain regions within the reward circuitry. Expand
Questionnaire and Behavioral Task Measures of Impulsivity are Differentially Associated With Body Mass Index: A Comprehensive Meta-Analysis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that impulsivity is positively associated with BMI and further document that this association varies by the type of impulsivity measure used and the domain of impulsiveness assessed. Expand

TLDR
The authors propose a psychological mechanism that highlights relations among disinhibition, reflection, and failures to learn from aversive feedback that has implications for disinhibited individuals' impulsivity and provides a point of departure to study factors responsible for similarities and differences among these syndromes.

Is the short-latency dopamine response too short to signal reward error?
TLDR
It is suggested that the initial burst of dopaminergic-neurone firing could represent an essential component in the process of switching attentional and behavioural selections to unexpected, behaviourally important stimuli and might be part of a general short-latency response that is mediated by catecholamines and prepares the organism for an appropriate reaction to biologically significant events.
