Women were examined by functional neuroimaging during performing a modified version of the ‘Monetary Incentive Delay’ task in two phases of their menstrual cycle. While the anticipation of gain and loss magnitude elicited similar activation patterns when hormones were low, high hormone levels altered brain activity differentially during the anticipation of high vs. low gains compared to losses. Current results connect to literature on different mechanisms underlying the processing of gains and losses.
