Reduced motivation, loss of interest, and fatigue are common symptoms of many psychological disorders that prove particularly difficult to treat. Early studies of anhedonia in depression and negative symptoms in schizophrenia focused on assessing impairments in the subjective experiences of pleasure.  More recent approaches, however, have highlighted the possible contributions of low motivation and integration of reinforcement information. In this presentation, I will discuss the use of effort-based decision-m

aking paradigms and  computational models to examine the transdiagnostic similarities and differences in reward motivation among patients with depression and schizophrenia.I will also present preliminary results from recent work examining the potential contribution of inflammation to reward-related deficits in psychopathology.
