Prefrontal-amygdala interactions underlying value coding

Neuron. 2013 Dec 18;80(6):1344-6. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2013.11.027.


Dissociating the source and function of value-related signals is a major challenge for understanding the role of reward in neural processing. In this issue of Neuron, Rudebeck et al. (2013) provide insight into the neuroanatomical origins of a subset of these signals.
