    There actually kinda is. Don't remember exact details from my psych class, but prof said something about they had an experiment on rats where the rats were in control of stimulating the rats' nucleus accumbens to initiate the release of dopamine by pressing a bar.. long story short, rats ended up ignoring hunger and everything and just kept pressing the bar.
