Wanting and liking: Observations from the neuroscience and psychology laboratory

Inquiry 52 (4):378 – 398 (2009)
Abstract
Different brain mechanisms seem to mediate wanting and liking for the same reward. This may have implications for the modular nature of mental processes, and for understanding addictions, compulsions, free will and other aspects of desire. A few wanting and liking phenomena are presented here, together with discussion of some of these implications
