Hi I have found a good article that will help you to begin your chapter it is titled :Neural Mechanisms Underlying Motivation of Mental Versus Physical Effort. It can be accessed from the university library website using EBSCOhost : http://web.b.ebscohost.com.ezproxy.canberra.edu.au/ehost/detail/detail?vid=8&sid=4df67072-e771-4631-9b9e-7fad5723ef46%40sessionmgr2&bdata=#AN=72321548&db=a9h The article looks at the motivation behind some mental and physical activities and will be helpful to use in your chapter. I also read the abstracts to two other articles which look like they would be extremely helpful for you but I could not gain full access to the articles, they still might be worth having a look at, they are titled: The role of the basal ganglia in motivation behaviour; and: Basal ganglia circuit loops, dopamine and motivation: A review and enquiry. I hope this is helpful for you --LeoDean1993 (discusscontribs) 02:17, 8 October 2016 (UTC)[]


Hi there! I found another article that I also thought might be worth a look http://www.sciencedirect.com.ezproxy.canberra.edu.au/science/article/pii/S0889159114005674 Good luck!--U113403 (discusscontribs) 23:31, 16 October 2016 (UTC)[]

--- hey, I don't know what direction you are taking but if you are looking for a direction, you could look at how reward processing interacts with the basal ganglia and the role of reward in motivation. There are a few studies on basal ganglia and the learning and memory functions involved in behaviour reinforcement. another note is the link between dopamine and the basal ganglia and novelty seeking (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23494736) hope it helps. --U3080948 (discusscontribs) 05:27, 18 October 2016 (UTC)[]
