Abstract

miller and rodgers (2001) proposed a central nervous system based ontogenetic bonding system that operates across the life course to promote succorant,“succorance” is a term coined by murray (1938) to describe a general tendency to seek the help and protection of others. affiliative, sexual, and nurturant bonds. i discuss features of this theoretical framework that can inform depue & morrone-strupinsky's (d&m-s's) model. most important, i suggest that the affiliative reward processes d&m-s describe are better conceptualized as subserving the affect/motivation of affection.
