The reward circuit is a central component of the neural network that drives incentive-based learning, appropriate responses to stimuli, and good decision making. The reward circuit is considered part of the corticobasal ganglia network. This circuit is included in several brain regions but is central in the orbital (OFC) and anterior cingulate cortices (ACC), the nucleus accumbens (NAcc), and the ventral tegmental area (VTA) dopamine neurons. This chapter describes the organization of the reward circuit and specific places in the network where crosstalk between functional circuits can occur.

Keywords:   reward circuit, neural network, corticobasal ganglia network, brain regions, crosstalk
