Impulsivity and cigarette smoking: delay discounting in current, never, and ex-smokers
Abstract Rationale: Impulsivity is implicated in drug dependence. Recent studies show problems with alcohol and opioid dependence are associated with rapid discounting of the value of delayedExpand

Impulsive and self-control choices in opioid-dependent patients and non-drug-using control participants: drug and monetary rewards.
Delay discounting was investigated in opioid-dependent and non-drug-using control participants. The latter participants were matched to the former on age, gender, education, and IQ. Participants inExpand

Impulsivity (delay discounting) as a predictor of acquisition of IV cocaine self-administration in female rats
RationalePrevious research in humans suggests a relationship between drug abuse and impulsivity as shown by selection of a smaller immediate reward over a larger delayed reward. However, it is notExpand

Delay discounting of real and hypothetical rewards.
The degree to which real and hypothetical rewards were discounted across delays ranging from 6 hr to 1 year was explored in a within-subjects design. An adjusting-amounts procedure was used toExpand

Comparing the reinforcing efficacy of nicotine containing and de-nicotinized cigarettes: a behavioral economic analysis
Abstract Rationale: Smoking-related respiratory stimuli produced by de-nicotinized cigarettes may function as conditioned reinforcers, but behavioral data on such reinforcing effects are limited.Expand

Discounting of delayed health gains and losses by current, never- and ex-smokers of cigarettes.
Recent evidence implicates steep discounting of delayed outcomes as an important feature of drug dependence. We determined discounting rates for health gains and health losses in current cigaretteExpand

Pathological gamblers discount probabilistic rewards less steeply than matched controls.
Nineteen treatment-seeking men meeting Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (4th ed.) criteria for pathological gambling and 19 demographically matched controls participated.Expand

Steady-state assessment of impulsive choice in Lewis and Fischer 344 rats: between-condition delay manipulations.
Previous research has shown that Lewis rats make more impulsive choices than Fischer 344 rats. Such strain-related differences in choice are important as they may provide an avenue for exploringExpand
