|Two dissociable learning processes underlie instrumental behaviour. Whereas goal-directed behaviour is controlled by knowledge of the consequences, habitual behaviour is elicited directly by antecedent Pavlovian stimuli without knowledge of the consequences. Predominance of habitual control is thought to underlie psychopathological conditions associated with corticostriatal abnormalities, such as impulsivity and drug dependence. To explore this claim, smokers were assessed for nicotine dependence, impulsivity, and capacity for goal-directed control over instrumental performance in an outcome devaluation procedure. Reduced goal-directed control was selectively associated with the Motor Impulsivity factor of Barrett's Impulsivity Scale (BIS), which reflects propensity for action without thought. These data support the claim that human impulsivity is marked by impaired use of causal knowledge to make adaptive decisions. The predominance of habit learning may play a role in psychopathological conditions that are associated with trait impulsivity.|

Animal behavioural neuroscience has identified two dissociable learning processes underlying instrumental behaviour (Dickinson & Balleine, 2010). Goal-directed, or intentional, instrumental behaviour is mediated by explicit knowledge of the instrumental contingency between response (R) and receipt of the outcome (O; intention), combined with knowledge of the incentive value of the O (desire), which provides evaluative feedback to determine the propensity to perform the R. By contrast, habitual instrumental behaviour comes under the direct control of stimuli (S) in which the response (R) has been previously reinforced, through classic S-R/reinforcement learning. Thus, whereas goal-directed behaviour is mediated by knowledge of the outcome, such knowledge plays no role in habitual behaviour because the S, when reencountered, elicits the R directly.
The revaluation procedure is the accepted method for determining the goal-directed or habitual status of an instrumental response. In a commonly employed animal revaluation design, rats first learn two instrumental responses for distinct outcomes (such as pellets and sucrose), before one outcome is devalued by specific satiety or taste aversion conditioning in a separate context. In the test phase that follows, rats again have the opportunity to perform the two instrumental responses, but this time in extinction—that is, where the two responses are no longer effective in producing their respective outcomes. A selective reduction of responding for the devalued outcome is interpreted as evidence that the response is goal directed in the sense of being controlled by knowledge of the R-O contingencies established in training combined with knowledge of the current low incentive value of the devalued outcome. By contrast, equivalent responding for the devalued and nondevalued outcome indicates that these responses have become autonomous of the current incentive value of the outcomes—that is, they have become S-R habits elicited directly by the instrumental context without knowledge of their consequences.
This dual-process theory of instrumental learning is supported by behavioural dissociation studies. These studies have found that whereas habit learning is favoured by conditions in which a single response-outcome contingency is overtrained (Dickinson, Balleine, Watt, Gonzalez, & Boakes, 1995; Holland, 2004; Kosaki & Dickinson, 2010), where the response is proximal to consumption in a seeking-taking chain (Corbit & Balleine, 2003) and where the causal contingency between the response and the outcome is degraded (Dickinson, Nicholas, & Adams, 1983), the opposite conditions favour goal-directed learning. Furthermore, neural dissociation studies have established that whereas goal-directed learning is mediated by a circuit including the prelimbic cortex and dorsomedial striatum, habit learning is primarily mediated by the somatosensory cortices and dorsolateral striatum (Balleine & O'Doherty, 2010). Finally, although the S -R controller may predominate in invariant conditions, agents readily switch back to the R-O controller when a prediction error is encountered (Daw, Niv, & Dayan, 2005).
The dominance of the habit learning system has been argued to underlie individual differences in impulsivity and associated conditions such as drug dependence (Everitt et al., 2008). Evidence for this claim comes from the finding that impulsivity confers a risk factor for dependence in both humans and animals (Belin, Mar, Dalley, Robbins, & Everitt, 2008; Verdejo-García, Lawrence, & Clark, 2008), and both conditions are associated with abnormalities in the corticostriatal pathways (Biederman et al., 2008; Volkow, Fowler, Wang, Baler, & Telang, 2009) underlying goal-directed and habit learning (Balleine & O'Doherty, 2010; Jedynak, Uslaner, Esteban, & Robinson, 2007). Finally, drug preexposure enhances impulsivity (Perry & Carrol, 2008) and habit learning (Nelson & Killcross, 2006; Nordquist et al., 2007; Schoenbaum & Setlow, 2005). The implication is that a preexisting habitual/impulsive trait increases the risk of uptake and maintenance of drug use because the individual fails to use knowledge of adverse consequences to regulate consumption. In turn, drug exposure exacerbates the individuals’ habitual/impulsive trait by impacting on the neural substrates of instrumental learning, thus rendering them more prone to develop habitual drug-seeking behaviours. The vulnerable individuals thus enter a vicious circle that longitudinally spirals into clinical dependence (Everitt et al., 2008).
To explore this claim, the current study used a human revaluation procedure to assess the relationship between individual differences in goal-directed control, impulsivity, and nicotine dependence in a group of student smokers. Revaluation procedures have been developed for humans to explore the neural substrates (de Wit, Corlett, Aitken, Dickinson, & Fletcher, 2009; Tricomi, Balleine, & O'Doherty, 2009; Valentin, Dickinson, & O'Doherty, 2007), developmental maturation (Kenward, Folke, Holmberg, Johansson, & Gredeback, 2009; Klossek, Russell, & Dickinson, 2008), and effects of conflict (de Wit, Niry, Wariyar, Aitken, & Dickinson, 2007) and stress (Schwabe & Wolf, 2009) on goal-directed and habit learning. However, as far as we are aware, this study is the first to examine the link between goal-directed control and impulsivity in humans.
Student smokers (n = 64) were recruited and were dichotomized into those who smoked every day (n = 32) and those who smoked less than every day of the week (n = 32). This behavioural criterion was employed because the early uptake of smoking measured in this way has been prospectively associated with the longitudinal perseveration of smoking and development of clinical dependence and thus provides a proxy for individual difference in vulnerability to dependence amongst individuals who have tried the drug (Hiroi & Scott, 2009). Gender was balanced within each group. All participants accurately reported knowledge of the response-outcome contingencies at the end of training. A further 8 participants were excluded and replaced who failed to accurately report this instrumental knowledge.
Impulsivity was measured with Version 11 of Barratt's Impulsivity Scale (BIS) because this scale has been well validated as an marker for dependence and neuropsychiatric conditions (Stanford et al., 2009). This questionnaire contains three subscales: (a) Motor Impulsivity (e.g., “I do things without thinking”) assesses propensity for action without thought; (b) Nonplanning Impulsivity (e.g., “I plan tasks carefully”) assesses future orientation; and (c) Attentional Impulsivity (e.g., “I don't pay attention”) assesses capacity for sustained attention. The median of each subscale was used to dichotomize the sample to establish three impulsivity criteria. Programming was conducted in E-prime software (Psychology Software Tools, Inc.) with standard PC and monitor.
It should be noted that impulsivity is a multidimensional construct, and there are many methods for measuring this trait (Cyders, Flory, Rainer, & Smith, 2009; Perry & Carrol, 2008; Verdejo-García et al., 2008; Whiteside & Lynam, 2001). We employed the BIS because this scale has been associated with drug dependence in many studies (Stanford et al., 2009), and we wanted to avoid increasing the likelihood of obtaining a false positive due to obtaining multiple indices of impulsivity. It will be important for future work to assess the relationship between goal-directed control and other measures of impulsivity.
Participants provided informed consent and their breath carbon monoxide level (through Bedfont Smokerlyzer). Questionnaires then established age, gender, smoking days per week, cigarettes smoked on smoking days, age of smoking onset, smoking years, time of their last cigarette, DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-Fourth Edition; American Psychiatric Association, 1994) nicotine dependence (Donny & Dierker, 2007), cigarette dependence score (Etter, Le Houezec, & Perneger, 2003), smoking urges (Brief Questionnaire of Smoking Urges, QSU-brief; Cappelleri et al., 2007), and substance misuse (Willner, 2000). The study was approved by the University of Nottingham Psychology Ethics Committee.
The purpose of concurrent choice training was to establish two instrumental responses, each of which earned a distinct reward. The training session was initiated with the following onscreen instructions: “This is a game in which you can win chocolate bars and bottles of water. In each trial, press the D or H key to try and win these rewards. You will only win on some trials. Press the space bar to begin.” Participants were informed verbally at this stage that they would not get to keep the rewards they earned during the task. Each trial began with the centrally presented text, “Select a key,” which remained until either the D or the H key was pressed. A single response on one key immediately replaced this text with the outcome, “You win 1/4 of chocolate bar,” whereas the other key produced the outcome, “You win 1/4 of a bottle of water,” accompanied by a picture of that reward. The key-reward assignment was counterbalanced between participants. Each key had only a 50% chance of yielding its respective outcome. On nonrewarded trials, the text “You win nothing” was presented. The outcomes (chocolate, water, nothing) were presented for 1,500 ms, followed by a random intertrial interval between 1,000 and 2,500 ms prior to the next trial.
Training comprised five 16 trial blocks, and each block contained two cycles of 8 trials. Each cycle scheduled 4 chocolate and 4 water outcomes in random order. At the end of each block a “totalizer” screen reported the quantity of each reward type earned and instructed participants to move whole chocolate bars or water bottles into “their” boxes present on the table (remainders were carried over to the next block). There were 10 each of Cadbury Dairy Milk Treatsize chocolate bars (15 g) and Acqua Panna S. Pellegrino still water bottles (250 ml) on the table, which participants cached in two adjacent boxes upon these totalizer instructions.
Following training, participants in each smoker group were randomly assigned to a chocolate and water satiety group (balancing gender). At the start of the satiety treatment, participants were asked to consume either eight chocolate bars or two bottles of water, respectively, to rate the pleasantness of each unit (chunk/sip) consumed on a visual analogue scale, to record the number of units consumed and the decline in palatability across units. Beyond these instructions, participants were not compelled to consume more than they wished, for ethical reasons, and whether they consumed the total amount or not was not recorded because the decline in hedonic evaluation of the devalued commodity was deemed to be the critical factor rather than the absolute amount consumed. When participants had finished consuming as much as possible of the reward, they reported their desire to consume chocolate and water on a 7-point Likert scale, to estimate the effectiveness of the satiety treatment at reducing desire for the devalued compared to the nondevalued outcome. The data of interest were the number of units consumed (consumption), the decline in the pleasantness ratings from the first to the last unit consumed (reduction in pleasure), and the reduction in desire for the devalued compared to the nondevalued outcome (reduction in desire).
The purpose of the extinction test was to assess the effect of the satiety treatment on choice between the two keys in the absence of feedback from the outcomes. Immediately following the satiety treatment, participants were presented with the on-screen instructions: “In this phase, you can earn chocolate bars and bottles of water as before but you will only be told how many you have earned at the end of the experiment. Press the space bar to begin“. By telling subjects that rewards were earned despite the absence of outcome feedback, we ensured that responding was maintained rather than rapidly extinguished (Schwabe & Wolf, 2009; Tricomi et al., 2009; Valentin et al., 2007).
The extinction test was identical to training except that outcomes were omitted from trials (thus each key selection simply launched the intertrial interval, ITI), the totalizer screen was omitted (each block ran seamlessly into the next), and there were 72 trials. Immediately following the test session, participants were asked which key had produced chocolate and which had produced water in the first part of the experiment. Participants were included only if they accurately reported these instrumental contingencies. Finally, participants were paid £5 and were debriefed.
Percentage choice of the chocolate key increased linearly across the five blocks of training—50.2, 51.8, 52.3, 54.9, 55.8, respectively, F(1, 63) = 5.83, p < .05—but stabilized by the final two blocks, F < 1, so the mean of the final two blocks was treated as the baseline choice. This baseline differed reliably from the economic indifference value of 50%, t(63) = 3.42, p < .005, indicating that there was a 5.3% preference for chocolate over water at baseline. However, there was no reliable difference in baseline chocolate choice between groups dichotomized by the three BIS impulsivity factors, smoking status, and satiety treatment, Fs(1, 62) < 1.51, ps > .22. Thus, we could examine the percentage reduction in choice of the devalued outcome in the extinction test compared to baseline in the knowledge that baseline choice was matched between groups.
Percentage chocolate choice showed no linear change across six 12-trial blocks of the extinction test in either satiety group, Fs(1, 31) < 2.21, ps > .05, so the overall mean was treated as the test session. Devaluation magnitude scores were calculated by subtracting the choice of the devalued outcome in the test phase from that at baseline, such that positive values reflect the percentage decrease in choice of the devalued outcome following the satiety treatment.
Figure 1A shows that the groups dichotomized by the median BIS motor impulsivity score (25) differed with respect to devaluation magnitude scores, F(1, 62) = 7.96, p < .007, although the devaluation effect of both the low, t(32) = 7.03, p < .001, and the high, t(32) = 2.69, p < .05, motor impulsive group was significantly greater than zero, indicating that the difference was in degree of goal-directed control. Importantly, the group effect was significant relative to the Bonferroni-corrected alpha level of p < .01 employed to control for the inflated Type 1 error rate due to conducting five group contrasts (tobacco dependence status, three BIS scores, and satiety treatment). The group effect did not interact with satiety treatment, F < 1, indicating that the group effect was equivalent in the two satiety treatments. Finally, when devaluation magnitude scores were segmented into six blocks of testing, the group effect did not interact with block, nor was there a main effect of block, Fs < 1, indicating that the group effect was stable across test blocks and cannot be attributed to a differential return of appetitive for the devalued outcome.
Additionally, as shown in Table 1, the high and low BIS motor groups were matched for consumption and reduction in subjective pleasure and desire for the devalued outcome in the satiety treatment, indicating equal effectiveness of the satiety treatment at reducing the hedonic appraisal of the devalued reward. Moreover, the group effect in Figure 1A remained significant when all measures listed in Table 1 were entered separately as covariates, Fs(1, 61) > 6.23, ps ≤ .01. Likewise, correlations revealed an association between BIS motor impulsivity scores and the devaluation effect, r = — .26, p < .05 (see Table 2), and this association remained significant when partial correlations controlled all variables listed in Table 1, rs > — .25, p ≤ .052. This analysis shows that differential goal-directed control across levels of motor impulsivity could not be attributed to confounding variables reflected in questionnaire data, including the other impulsivity subscales, or differential experience of the satiety treatment.
By contrast, the two smoker groups did not differ with respect to the devaluation effect, F < 1 (Figure 1B) despite their difference in multiple proxies of nicotine dependence shown in Table 1, and smoking days per week did not correlate with the devaluation effect, r = −.03, p = .80 (see Table 2). Moreover, Table 1 shows a positive association between smoking days per week and motor impulsivity, which was borne out by a correlation between these scores, r = .27, p < .04. By contrast, smoking days per week did not correlate with BIS nonplanning or attentional impulsivity scores, rs < .09, ps > .52. Finally, the correlation between smoking days per week and BIS motor scores remained significant or marginal when all variables listed in Table 1 were partialled out in partial correlations, rs > .21, ps < .09. Thus, despite smoking days per week being selectively associated with motor impulsivity in this student sample, smoking days was not itself significantly associated with the devaluation effect.
Finally, there was no difference in devaluation effect between groups split by the median BIS nonplanning score (25; Figure 1C), attentional impulsivity score (17; Figure 1D) or satiety treatment, Fs(1, 62) < 1.60, ps > .21, and these two impulsivity subscales did not correlate with the devaluation effect (see Table 2). We conclude, therefore, that impaired goal-directed control in this human outcome devaluation procedure was selectively associated with BIS motor impulsivity.
The satiety treatment reduced the desire for the devalued compared to the nondevalued outcome by an average of 4.2 points on the 7-point Likert scale. This reduction in desire was greater for the chocolate (mean = 5.3, SEM = 0.2) than for the water (mean = 3.2, SEM = 0.4) treatment, F(1, 62) = 26.62, p < .001, although both treatments were reliably greater than zero, ts(31) > 8.90, ps < .001, demonstrating the effectiveness of the treatments in reducing desire for the devalued outcome selectively. Similarly, the satiety treatments reduced the pleasure rating of the first sip/chunk consumed relative to the last by an average of 63.7% on a visual analogue scale. Moreover, this decline in palatability was equal for the chocolate (mean = 68.2%, SEM = 4.4) and water (mean = 59.2%, SEM = 4.4) treatments, F(1, 62) = 2.11, p = .15, and the overall mean was significantly greater than zero, t(63) = 20.30, p < .001, indicating that both treatments reduced palatability of the consumed reward. Finally, fewer chunks/sips were consumed in the chocolate (mean = 18.3, SEM = 1.5) than the water (mean = 24.8, SEM = 1.4) satiety treatment, F(1, 62) = 10.09, p < .001.
The sample as a whole selectively reduced responding for the devalued outcome in the extinction test, indicating that their choice was goal directed in the sense of being controlled by an integration of knowledge about the R-O contingencies established in training with knowledge of the current incentive value of the Os. This outcome-specific devaluation effect accords with previous demonstrations of goal-directed control over instrumental behaviour in humans (de Wit et al., 2009; de Wit et al., 2007; Kenward et al., 2009; Klossek et al., 2008; Schwabe & Wolf, 2009; Tricomi et al., 2009; Valentin et al., 2007).
The unique contribution of the current study was the finding that the outcome-specific devaluation effect was associated with BIS motor impulsivity; specifically, the devaluation effect was reduced in participants who scored high in motor impulsivity. This subscale required participants to endorse questions about their propensity for action without thought—for example, “I make up my mind quickly” and “I act on the spur of the moment”. These questions fit the intuitive sense of the phenomenology of habit, that behaviour is prompted by the situation rather than chosen following an evaluation of alternatives. The claim that impulsive individuals are more strongly cue driven accords with a finding by Kirkeby and Robinson (2005) that impulsive individuals showed reduced variation in reaction times in the Stroop task, suggesting they were more reliably prompted by the colour cue and reflected less about the meaning of the word than did low impulsive individuals.
The differential devaluation effect of the high and low motor impulsive groups could not be attributed to potential confounding variables. With regard to the satiety treatment, the motor impulsive groups showed the same consumption and reduction in the palatability and desire for the devalued outcome, plus these scores were ineffective as covariates. Thus, the differential devaluation effect could not be explained by differential sensitivity to the satiety treatment. Second, the questionnaire data were ineffective as covariates, suggesting that the differential devaluation effect could not be attributed to group differences in questionnaire measures including the other impulsivity subscales. Third, all participants included in the study accurately reported knowledge of the R-O contingencies established in training, at the end of the test session, so the differential devaluation effect could not be attributed to differences in knowledge of these contingencies during the test period. Finally, the differential devaluation effect remained stable over test blocks, so could not be attributed to a differential return of appetite for the devalued outcome during the test period. We conclude, therefore, that the impaired devaluation performance in the high motor impulsive group was mediated by a relative decoupling of instrumental choice from the explicit hedonic appraisal of the outcomes. This decoupling may have arisen from high impulsive participants’ regarding their instrumental choices as being irrelevant to their current motivational state, or from a predominance of habitual S-R control over choice. Either way, this decoupling is reminiscent of the wanting-liking distinction (Berridge & Kringelbach, 2008; Robinson & Berridge, 1993) inasmuch as action was selected in contradiction to reduced hedonic evaluation of the outcome.
Total BIS impulsivity scores have been associated with a variety of neuropsychiatric conditions including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), adolescent risk taking, reduced error processing, gambling, violent offending, neurodegeneration, and brain injury (Stanford et al., 2009). In addition, the Motor Impulsivity subscale in particular (compared to the other subscales) has shown associations with cocaine use, craving, and treatment retention (Moeller et al., 2001; see also Leblond, Ladouceur, & Blaszczynski, 2003), binge drinking (Carlson, Johnson, & Jacobs, 2010), major depression (Hur & Kim, 2009),
duration of bipolar depression (Swann, Lijffijt, Lane, Steinberg, & Moeller, 2009), mania (Swann, Steinberg, Lijffijt, & Moeller, 2008), suicide attempts (Dougherty et al., 2004), binge eating disorder (Nasser, Gluck, & Geliebter, 2004), as well as alterations in Wisconsin card sorting performance (Cheung, Mitsis, & Halperin, 2004), working memory performance (Whitney, Jameson, & Hinson, 2004), executive function (Spinella, 2005), and stop signal task performance (Gorlyn, Keilp, Tryon, & Mann, 2005), underactivation of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC; Asahi, Okamoto, Okada, Yamawaki, & Yokota, 2004) and overactivation of the ventrolateral PFC (Goya-Maldonado et al., 2010) in no-go trials, and overactivation of the DLPFC in a rapid cue-matching task (Valdes et al., 2006). Our finding that motor impulsivity is associated with impaired goal-directed control raises the possibility that underperformance of the R-O controller and/or predominance of the S -R controller may be present in all of these neuropsychological conditions, but this remains to be tested.
By contrast, there was no difference in the magnitude of the devaluation effect between the daily and nondaily smoker groups recruited for this study, indicating that our proxy of tobacco dependence vulnerability (smoking days per week) was not associated with differential goal-directed control. In explaining this null result, it is noteworthy that adult drug dependence is typically associated with higher BIS scores on all three subscales (Stanford et al., 2009), yet in our student sample, only one proxy for dependence level, smoking days per week, was associated with only the Motor Impulsivity subscale. The restrictedness of this association compared to older/more dependent drug users fits the argument that although impulsivity is associated with the early acquisition of drug taking, this association becomes stronger longitudinally with the transition to clinical dependence (Belin et al., 2008; Biederman et al., 1997; Flory & Manuck, 2009). The implication is that impaired goal-directed control should have a larger effect size in older addicts, especially those who have experienced drug-related neuroadaptations or neurotoxicity. This proposal could explain why psychostimulant preexposed rats show accelerated habit learning (Nelson & Killcross, 2006; Nordquist et al., 2007; Schoenbaum & Setlow, 2005) whereas our more dependent student smoker did not. To conclude, adaptive decision making requires that the cognitively demanding R-O controller overrides established S-R habits when circumstances change. Our data suggest that human motor impulsivity is associated with impairment in this capacity. It seems reasonable, therefore, that dual-process theory of instrumental learning could make an important contribution to the understanding of neuropsychiatric conditions of which impulsivity is a core feature.
