In the third chapter, reward dependent instrumental learning and its computational modelling is explained. Reward prediction errors are encoded by phasic dopamine release and specific paradigms including reversal learning are described with respect to clinical findings in different mental disorders. The chapter illustrates how computational approaches avoid relying exclusively on subjective reports of patients and instead correlate specific computational steps during reward related learning with their neurobiological correlates.
