The suggestions that dopamine (DA) systems are involved in “motor control” and “reward” represent the classic working hypotheses on the behavioral functions of these systems. The research generated by these hypotheses has yielded results that are far more complicated than the simplest form of either hypothesis would indicate. Pharmacological or lesion-induced interference with DA function does not suppress all aspects of movement control, nor all aspects of reward, nor all aspects of motivation… Expand
Mesolimbic Dopamine and the Regulation of Motivated Behavior.
It has been known for some time that nucleus accumbens dopamine (DA) is involved in aspects of motivation , but theoretical approaches to understanding the functions of DA have continued to evolveExpand
Effort-related functions of nucleus accumbens dopamine and associated forebrain circuits
TLDR
Along with prefrontal cortex and the amygdala, nucleus accumbens is a component of the brain circuitry regulating effort-related functions and may have implications for understanding drug abuse, as well as energy-related disorders such as psychomotor slowing, fatigue, or anergia in depression. Expand
Beyond the reward hypothesis: alternative functions of nucleus accumbens dopamine.
According to the dopamine (DA) hypothesis of reward, DA systems in the brain, particularly in the nucleus accumbens, are thought to directly mediate the rewarding or primary motivationalExpand
Neurobiology of Effort and the Role of Mesolimbic Dopamine
Abstract Classical definitions of motivation typically involve two main components: direction and activation. Motivated behavior is directed toward or away from particular stimuli (i.e., appetitiveExpand
Parsing the Role of Mesolimbic Dopamine in Specific Aspects of Motivation: Behavioral Activation, Invigoration, and Effort-Based Decision Making
Abstract Definitions of motivation typically emphasize both directional and activation aspects of behavior. Motivated behavior is directed toward or away from particular stimuli, and also isExpand
Nucleus Accumbens Dopamine and the Forebrain Circuitry Involved in Behavioral Activation and Effort-Related Decision Making: Implications for Understanding Anergia and Psychomotor Slowing in Depression
The notion that motivated behaviors having an energetic or activational component is an old one, and there are numerous examples of this idea from the literatures of psychology and ethology.Expand
The behavioral pharmacology of effort-related choice behavior: dopamine, adenosine and beyond.
TLDR
Viewed from the framework of behavioral economics, the effects of accumbens DA depletions and antagonism on food-reinforced behavior are highly dependent upon the work requirements of the instrumental task, and DA-depleted rats show a heightened sensitivity to response costs, especially ratio requirements. Expand
The Mysterious Motivational Functions of Mesolimbic Dopamine
TLDR
The complex roles of dopamine in behavioral functions related to motivation are discussed, including behavioral activation, exertion of effort, approach behavior, sustained task engagement, Pavlovian processes, and instrumental learning. Expand
The Role of Adenosine in the Ventral Striatal Circuits Regulating Behavioral Activation and Effort-Related Decision Making: Importance for Normal and Pathological Aspects of Motivation
Motivated behavior can be characterized by a high degree of activity, vigor, and persistence. Brain dopamine (DA), particularly in the nucleus accumbens, has been implicated in activational aspectsExpand
Behavioral Activation, Effort-Based Choice, and Elasticity of Demand for Motivational Stimuli: Basic and Translational Neuroscience Approaches
Behavioral activation and effort-related processes are fundamental components of the construct of motivation. Motivated behavior is often characterized by considerable vigor, persistence, andExpand

Influence of Dopamine on Limbic Inputs to the Nucleus Accumbens
TLDR
Results from the behavioral experiments are interpreted, along with those from electrophysiological experiments, to suggest an integrated hypothesis on possible functions of dopamine in the accumbens, especially its role in behavioral response initiation. Expand
Brain catecholamines and the central control of food intake.
TLDR
Findings suggest an important role of brain catecholamines in behavioral arousal, that is, in permitting animals to remain alert and to respond appropriately to relevant sensory stimuli. Expand
From motivation to action: Functional interface between the limbic system and the motor system
TLDR
It has been proposed that the nucleus accumbens is a key component of this neural interface since it receives inputs from limbic forebrain structures, either directly or indirectly via the ventral tegmental area of Tsai, and sends signals to the motor system via the globus pallidus. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that the biological substrate of DA-mediated incentive learning is a heterosynaptic facilitation of muscarinic cholinergic synapses, which has important clinical implications since it has been suggested that DA hyperfunctioning underlies the development of schizophrenia. Expand
Dopaminergic A10 neurones are involved in cognitive functions
TLDR
It is demonstrated here that selective lesions of dopaminergic A10 neurones in the rat produce a severe and specific impairment in retention of delayed alternation. Expand
Depletion of unilateral striatal dopamine impairs initiation of contralateral actions and not sensory attention
TLDR
Two lines of evidence are presented that show that unilateral striatal DA depletion in the rat does not affect sensory attention to visual signals of reward, but rather impairs the initiation (though not the completion) of contralateral motor acts. Expand

The mesolimbic-mesocortical dopamine (DA) network can be considered as the Cinderella of the catecholamine family, at least by comparison with the nigrostriatal and the tuberoinfundibular pathwaysExpand

TLDR
The results suggest that when motor confounds are avoided, dopamine antagonist drugs can still produce patterns of operant behavior that very closely resemble those observed with actual reductions in reward magnitude, providing support for the contention that central dopaminergic substrates play a role in the neurobiology of positive reinforcement.

TLDR
Two behavioral factors: an increased threshold for responding to the sensory properties of food and water and an increase in the effort required to eat and drink are used to explain the symptoms making up the lateral hypothalamic syndrome without postulating changes in physiological regulatory (set point) mechanisms.

TLDR
It is proposed that the preexposed stimulus loses its capacity to affect behavior in conditioning, even though it predicts reinforcement, because the hippocampus inhibits the switching mechanism of the nucleus accumbens via the subiculum-accumbens pathway. Expand
