We constantly need to make decisions that can result in rewards of different amounts with different probabilities and at different timing. To characterize the neural coding of such computational factors affecting value-based decision-making, we have investigated how reward information processing is influenced by parameters such as reward magnitude, probability delay, effort, and uncertainty using fMRI in healthy humans or intracranial recordings in patients with epilepsy.
