We all pursue goals. These goals motivate some of our behaviors which allow us to interact with the environment until we satisfy our needs and desires. We disclose the neuronal mechanism that encodes the specific motivation needed to achieve a pursued goal. Our study extends what is known of the amygdala, our brain’s emotion-processing center, in adaptive outcome-seeking behavior.
