We humans are masters at communicating our subjective experience, but is our objective perception of the world outside affected by our internal state, by the anticipation of reward for example? In his research, Pieter Goltstein addresses this question by discussing two experiments that investigate how learning a stimulus-reward association affects the representation of reward-predicting visual information in the brain, and specifically in the visual cortex.
