Dopamine is famously involved in reward, but exactly how continues to be the subject of debate. Two key functions include signaling reward expectations to promote motivated, effortful work, and signaling errors in reward expectation to promote learning. I will present new studies from my laboratory examining each of these processes. We combine recent technological advances for measuring dopamine with novel behavioral tasks, to probe how animals compute reward expectations over multiple temporal and spatial scales.
