Rewards act as external factors that influence and reinforce learning processes. Researchers have now been able to show that the brain can produce its own learning signals in cases where no such external feedback is available. A report on the mechanisms underlying these self-generated feedback signals has been published, and shows clear parallels between the neurobiological processes involved in learning based on external and self-generated feedback. —> Read More
