about this item

This book is inspired by a question central to health care professionals, teachers, parents and coaches alike: How can an individual be motivated to perform a given activity or training? It presents novel measurement of motivation developed in psychology and economics, recent insights into the neurobiology of motivation and current research on applications designed to boost motivation in neurorehabilitation, education and sports; and connect these different research and knowledge fields within a common (theoretical) framework of motivation. Thus in short, the book provides an integrative, interdisciplinary up-to-date account of the neurobiology of motivation and how motivation might be boosted.
