Makes few if any assumptions about the cardinal features of rewards associated with better actions; 2. makes few if any assumptions about how learning takes place; 3. is clearly testable in an experimentally feasible data set; 4. is directly useful in discriminating between the DRPE and alternative hypotheses? The extent of the challenge is made clear by focusing on the key words that define the hypothesis. Rewards are hard to treat as objectively measurable in natural units, as we know only too well from the review of choice theory.
