Reward and reward prediction in declarative memory: An electrophysiological approach Ghent University
It is becoming gradually clear that the human brain must continuously make predictions for the
purpose of cognitive functioning. One of the features we make predictions about, is reward.
Whenever there is a difference between reward outcome and reward prediction, we experience a
reward prediction error (RPE). RPEs have been repeatedly shown to guide procedural learning (i.e.,
skill learning by means of repeated ...
