This study examined instantaneous and cumulative effects of competitive interactions on impulsiveness in the inter-temporal choices in domestic chicks. Chicks were trained to peck colored beads to gain delayed food rewards (1 or 6 grains of millet delivered after a delay ranging between 0 and 4.5 s), and were tested in binary choices between a small-short delay option (SS) and a large-long delay alternative (LL). To examine whether competitive foraging instantaneously changes impulsiveness, we… CONTINUE READING
