Determination of reinforcer value in rats with an adjusting-delay choice procedure involving a correspondence between location and amount of reinforcement
MetadataShow full item record
Many models of reinforcement value predict that an animal should value a large delayed reinforcer more than a small immediate reinforcer. However, as the delay between choices and presentation of the large reinforcer increases, eventually, an animal should value the small reinforcer more highly. The current experiment employed a discrete-trials choice procedure to test these predictions.
