Biological Perspectives On Motivated Activities

by Roderick Wong

Editorial Reviews

A collection of essays, reviews, and experimental reports presenting biological perspectives on selected topics in motivation. Although human behavior is discussed and analyzed, the emphasis is on animal motivation. The chapters are grouped into sections on evolution and proximate mechanisms; early experience and motivation; motivation of ingestive behavior; aversion motivation; and sensory pleasure and motivation. In a variety of ways, the authors consider the interplay of functional factors and proximate mechanisms in their analysis of motivated behavior. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
