Biopsychologische Aspekte der Motivation

Part of the Springer-Lehrbuch book series (SLB)


Dieses Kapitel gibt eine Übersicht über biopsychologische Erklärungsansätze in der Motivationspsychologie. Diese sehen Motivation in affektiven Bewertungen von Reizen und Situationen verankert, verorten diese Prozesse und ihre Auswirkungen auf das Verhalten in spezifischen Hirnregionen (Amygdala, Striatum, orbitofrontaler Cortex, Hypothalamus) und beschäftigen sich mit der Rolle von Neurotransmittern und Hormonen. Das Kapitel erörtert neben allgemeinen Prinzipien und Mechanismen motivationaler Prozesse und deren Abgrenzung von anderen Formen der Verhaltensregulation auch ausgewählte spezifische Motivationssysteme (Nahrungsaufnahme, soziale Bindung, Dominanz, Sexualität).
