Goal-directed actions are executed with greater efficiency when the goals of the actions are rewarded and so the reward expectation must influence systems concerned with action-planning and motor control. However, little is known about how this influence is achieved in primates. Here, we demonstrate in human subjects that manual performance is enhanced when the goals of the visually cued actions are monetary rewards. We also used event-related fMRI in the same subjects to localize neural… CONTINUE READING
