This chapter explores the subcortical mediation of the motivational and cognitive control exerted by environmental cues on instrumental performance. It begins with a discussion of motivational control of Pavlovian cues over instrumental responding. It then addresses more cognitive control of instrumental performance by environmental cues. Finally, the chapter discusses the behavioral and theoretical accounts of habitual and goal-directed learning.

Keywords:   subcortical mediation, motivational control, cognitive control, environmental cues, instrumental performance, Pavlovian cues, instrumental responding, learning
