Abstract:

"Motivation, the driving force of our behavior, is relevant to all aspects of human life and the question how motivation can be enhanced is likewise ubiquitous. As a consequence, motivation is a prominent topic in the psychological, educational, neuroscience, and economic literature and has been subject to both extensive theoretical consideration and empirical research. Yet, motivation and its neural mechanisms are not yet fully understood, and the demand for new tools to enhance motivation in education, health, and work settings remains high. This volume provides an up-to-date overview over the theoretical and experimental work on motivation, discusses recent findings about the neurobiological mechanisms underlying motivation and goal-directed behavior, and presents novel approaches targeting motivation in clinical and nonclinical application settings. It contains a mix of review articles and new original research studies, and crosses the boundaries of and connects findings from a range of scientific disciplines, including psychology, economics, behavioral and cognitive neurosciences, and education"--Preface (p. xxi).
