Reward processing involves both appetitive and consummatory phases. We sought to examine whether reward anticipation vs outcomes would recruit different regions of ventral forebrain circuitry using event-related fMRI. Nine healthy volunteers participated in a monetary incentive delays task in which they either responded to a cued target for monetary reward, responded to a cued target for no reward, or did not respond to a cued target during scanning. Multiple regression analyses indicated that… 
Modulation of Caudate Activity by Action Contingency
Dissociation of neural regions associated with anticipatory versus consummatory phases of incentive processing.
TLDR
Although the study features several methodological improvements and helps clarify the neural basis of incentive processing, replications in larger samples are needed.
Choice selection and reward anticipation: an fMRI study
The Role of Ventral Frontostriatal Circuitry in Reward-Based Learning in Humans
TLDR
It is shown that the nucleus accumbens, thalamus, and orbital frontal cortex are each sensitive to reward magnitude, with the Accumbens showing the greatest discrimination between reward values.
Dissociation of BOLD responses to reward prediction errors and reward receipt by a model comparison
TLDR
A functional specialization of behaviorally important aspects of reward processing within the mesolimbic dopaminergic system is confirmed and activated related to reward anticipation was found in the orbitofrontal cortex.
Attentional modulation of reward processing in the human brain
TLDR
The results provide evidence for distinct functional roles of the brain regions involved in the processing of reward‐indicating information: While subcortical structures signal the motivational salience of reward cues even when attention is fully engaged elsewhere, reward‐related responses in anterior insula depend on available attentional resources, likely reflecting the conscious evaluation of sensory information with respect to motivational value.
Neural Mechanisms Underlying Time Perception and Reward Anticipation
TLDR
FMRI data suggest that a prefrontal-striatal circuit might integrate reward and timing systems of the brain and suggest that the physiological mechanisms involved in the reward anticipation and time perception partially overlap.

Tracking the hemodynamic responses to reward and punishment in the striatum.
TLDR
An event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging paradigm is developed to identify brain areas that are activated after presentation of a reward and shows differential responses to reward and punishment.
Dissociable Neural Responses in Human Reward Systems
TLDR
Functional neuroimaging was used to assess neural response within human reward systems under different psychological contexts and demonstrated neural sensitivity of midbrain and ventral striatal regions to financial rewards and hippocampal sensitivity to financial penalties.
Abstract reward and punishment representations in the human orbitofrontal cortex
TLDR
Findings indicate that one emotional involvement of the human orbitofrontal cortex is its representation of the magnitudes of abstract rewards and punishments, such as receiving or losing money.
Reward processing in primate orbitofrontal cortex and basal ganglia.
TLDR
The investigated cortical and basal ganglia structures showed multiple, heterogeneous, partly simultaneous activations which were related to specific aspects of rewards, which suggest an access to central representations of rewards which may be used for the neuronal control of goaldirected behavior.
Activation of the human brain by monetary reward
TLDR
It is suggested that the observed foci are implicated in the assessment of consequences in goal-directed behaviour which agrees with research in non-human primates.
FMRI Visualization of Brain Activity during a Monetary Incentive Delay Task
TLDR
Results corroborate comparative studies which implicate striatal and mesial forebrain circuitry in the elaboration of incentive-driven behavior and introduce a new paradigm for probing the functional integrity of this circuitry in humans.
Preferential activation of midbrain dopamine neurons by appetitive rather than aversive stimuli
TLDR
Dopamine neurons preferentially report environmental stimuli with appetitive rather than aversive motivational value, and primary and conditioned non-noxious aversive stimuli either failed to activate dopamine neurons or induced weaker responses than appetitive stimuli.
