Reinforcement and punishment: Dissociable systems for action and emotion?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (2):205-205 (2000)
Rolls presents a theory of emotion based on the premise that emotions are evoked by events that are capable of being instrumental reinforcers and punishers. As support for this theory is drawn almost entirely from experiments in non-human primates, valuable insights into the relationship between punishment and reinforcement systems, and the nature of instrumentality, may have been overlooked.
