Recent research showed that cognitive emotion regulation (ER) both increases activity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and decreases striatal responsivity to monetary rewards. Using a mixed monetary incentive delay/memory task as well as functional magnetic resonance imaging, we tested in healthy subjects whether ER effectively attenuates striatal reward encoding during the anticipation of reward (€1.00 vs. €0.05 reward cues) as well as subsequent target reaction times (RTs), which… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Right prefrontal and ventral striatum interactions underlying impulsive choice and impulsive responding
TLDR
A novel task that combines reward and control processes and observes that successful inhibitions on monetary trials were associated, during the anticipation phase, with increased activation in the right inferior frontal gyrus (rIFG), decreased activity in the ventral striatum (VS), and altered functional connectivity between the two.
Monetary reward magnitude effects on behavior and brain function during goal-directed behavior
TLDR
The results showed that the brain activity of left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and the striatum were modulated by increasing and decreasing reward magnitudes, respectively, and the locus of influence of monetary incentives overlaps the activity of the regions commonly involved in cognitive control.
Striatal activation and frontostriatal connectivity during non‐drug reward anticipation in alcohol dependence
TLDR
Findings provide evidence that alcohol dependence is rather associated with disrupted integration of striatal and prefrontal processes than with a global reward anticipation deficit.
Ventromedial Prefrontal Cortex Encodes Emotional Value
TLDR
The results suggest that the vmPFC encodes a domain-general value signal that tracks the value of not only external rewards, but also emotional stimuli, which is important for the valuation of emotionally evocative images.
Reward Contingencies Improve Goal-Directed Behavior by Enhancing Posterior Brain Attentional Regions and Increasing Corticostriatal Connectivity in Cocaine Addicts
TLDR
The brain response to gradients in monetary value was different in healthy control subjects and abstinent cocaine dependent patients, but both groups showed improved task performance due to the possibility of obtaining greater monetary rewards.
Expectation of reward differentially modulates executive inhibition
TLDR
This approach aims to gain insight into diverse psychopathological conditions related to impulsivity and altered reward systems such as Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, personality disorders, substance abuse, pathological gambling and cognitive aspects of Parkinson Disease.
Delay discounting without decision-making: medial prefrontal cortex and amygdala activations reflect immediacy processing and correlate with impulsivity and anxious-depressive traits
TLDR
The results uncover neural correlates of delay discounting during reward delivery, and suggest that impulsivity and subclinical anxious-depressive traits are related to stronger neural responses for winning immediate relative to delayed rewards.
Individual differences in the habitual use of cognitive reappraisal predict the reward-related processing
TLDR
Results suggest that the habitual use of cognitive reappraisal is associated with increased neural processing of reward.

Dissociation of reward anticipation and outcome with event-related fMRI
TLDR
It is suggested that reward anticipation and outcomes may differentially recruit distinct regions that lie along the trajectory of ascending dopamine projections.
Anticipation of Increasing Monetary Reward Selectively Recruits Nucleus Accumbens
TLDR
Findings suggest that whereas other striatal areas may code for expected incentive magnitude, a region in the NAcc codes for expected positive incentive value, which is correlated with individual differences in self-reported happiness elicited by the reward cues.
Neural Differentiation of Expected Reward and Risk in Human Subcortical Structures
Neural correlates of frustration
TLDR
The contrast omission relative to receipt of reward led to a decrease in ventral striatal activation consistent with prediction error theory, and increased activation was found in areas previously related to emotional pain: the right anterior insula and the right ventral prefrontal cortex.
Temporal Prediction Errors in a Passive Learning Task Activate Human Striatum
Regulation of emotional responses elicited by threat‐related stimuli
TLDR
It is demonstrated that amygdala responses to threat‐related stimuli can be controlled through the use of cognitive strategies depending on recruitment of prefrontal areas, thereby changing the subject's affective state.
The Primate Striatum: Neuronal Activity in Relation to Spatial Attention Versus Motor Preparation
TLDR
The recorded neurons from the striatum in two rhesus monkeys trained to perform a conditional visuomotor task suggest that the basal ganglia are involved in shifting attentional set and in high‐order processes of movement initiation, including the linking of sensory information with behavioural responses.
Discriminative Cues Indicating Reward Magnitude Continue to Determine Reaction Time of Rats Following Lesions of the Nucleus Accumbens
TLDR
It is concluded that the nucleus accumbens is not involved in the acquisition or expression of the processes whereby the expectation of rewards of different value is translated into a motor initiation signal.
