Advances in Motivation Science : Volume 5 Hardback
Part of the Advances in Motivation Science series
Advances in Motivation Science, Volume Five, is the latest release in Elsevier's brand new serial on the topic of motivation science.
Users will find comprehensive chapters on a variety of topics, including The functional architecture of personality, Parsing the role of mesolimbic dopamine in specific aspects of motivation: Behavioral activation, invigoration, and effort-based decision making, The allostatic brain: Prediction, affect and motivation, the Egosystem and Ecosystem: Motivational Systems for the Self, The Role of Flow in Optimal Development, PSI Theory, Self-Efficacy's Odd Role in Unifying Self-Regulation Theories, Children's Expectancies and Values: Developmental Trajectories and Impact on Performance and Choice, amongst other topics. The advent of the cognitive revolution in the 1960 and 70s eclipsed the emphasis on motivation to a large extent, but in the past two decades motivation has returned en force.
Today, motivational analyses of affect, cognition and behavior are ubiquitous across psychological literatures and disciplines.
This series brings together internationally recognized experts who focus on cutting-edge theoretical and empirical contributions in this important area of psychology.
