A second stress-theoretical construct has been proposed, the construct of reward [17,18,26,27]. There is increasing evidence of a powerful regulatory role of a particular brain system implicated in motivation, reinforcement, and reward in personal and interpersonal well-being. This is the mesolimbic dopamine system, which innervates the prefrontal cortex, a brain region involved in cognitive function and anticipatory activity. Reward-sensitive neuronal structures in the orbitofrontal cortex elicit sustained stress reactions following the frustration of reward expectancies or the loss of anticipated gratifications.

In its second part, the chapter summarizes recent empirical evidence in favor of a central part of the proposed framework, the model of effort-reward imbalance. Finally, the promise and limitation of applying this framework to the study of CHD variations in Central and Eastern European countries are briefly discussed. 2.
