Role of affective associations in the planning and habit systems of decision-making related to addiction

  • Marc T. Kiviniemi (a1) and Rick A. Bevins (a2)

The model proposed by Redish et al. considers vulnerabilities within decision systems based on expectancy-value assumptions. Further understanding of processes leading to addiction can be gained by considering other inputs to decision-making, particularly affective associations with behaviors. This consideration suggests additional decision-making vulnerabilities that might explain addictive behaviors.
