Time, not size, matters for striatal reward predictions to dopamine


Burke, Christopher J; Tobler, Philippe N (2016). Time, not size, matters for striatal reward predictions to dopamine. Neuron, 91(1):8-11.

Abstract

Midbrain dopamine neurons encode reward prediction errors. In this issue of Neuron, Takahashi et al. (2016) show that the ventral striatum provides dopamine neurons with prediction information specific to the timing, but not the quantity, of reward, suggesting a surprisingly nuanced neural implementation of reward prediction errors.
