Efficient coding and the neural representation of value

Kenway Louie, Paul W. Glimcher
2012 Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences  
Similar contextual modulation occurs widely in the sensory system, and efficient coding principles derived in the sensory domain suggest a new framework for understanding the neural coding of value.  ...  Although normative theories of choice have outlined the theoretical structure of these valuations, recent experiments have begun to reveal how value is instantiated in the activity of neurons and neural  ...  Introduction The activity in many brain regions is sensitive to reward, a modulation that can reflect not just value but processes such as sensation, motivation, and attention.  ...

Lateral Hypothalamic Control of the Ventral Tegmental Area: Reward Evaluation and the Driving of Motivated Behavior

Susan M. Tyree, Luis de Lecea
2017 Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience  
Lateral hypothalamic projections to the VTA are believed to be important for driving behavior due to the involvement of dopaminergic reward circuitry.  ...  The lateral hypothalamus (LH) plays an important role in many motivated behaviors, sleep-wake states, food intake, drug-seeking, energy balance, etc.  ...  This modulation of reward response in the VTA may play an important role in directing motivated behaviors to rewards that are less predictable over rewards that are more regularly available.  ...
