Reward: Wanted – a better definition

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (2):208-208 (2000)
Abstract
Rolls's book depends significantly on a definition relating emotion to reward and learning. This definition confuses two separable concepts, and may result in the exclusion of notions of emotion and motivation from lower animals that may possess limited learning capacities. A more useful definition might revolve around the notion that emotions are states that function to optimize the performance of behavior.
