Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate whether dopamine levels (as measured by the spontaneous eye blink) correlate to novelty seeking and whether dopamine and novelty seeking moderate performance on a cognitive flexibility task. While we found an effect of task condition, neither dopamine nor novelty seeking influenced performance on the cognitive flexibility task.
