Reward System

Certain neural structures, called the reward system, are critically involved mediating the effects of reinforcement. a reward is an appetitive stimulus given to a human or some other animal to alter its behavior. rewards typically serve as reinforcers. a reinforcer is something that, when presented after a behavior, causes the probability of that behavior's occurrence to increase. note that just because something is labelled a reward does not necessitate it as a reinforcer.
