A fundamental feature of human thought and action is the ability to engage in a complex repertoire of behaviours geared towards remote goals. Humans often have to override reflexive and habitual reactions to orchestrate behaviour in accordance with intentions. Such control of response tendencies can be implemented via ‘cognitive' and or via reward-based, ‘motivational' systems. A number of neurological and psychiatric disorders are characterized by a breakdown in these systems. In this context, researchers from all over the world and from different disciplines are concerned with understanding the neural mechanisms underlying motivational and cognitive control.
