Effects of early experience on the development of filial preferences in the domestic chick.
TLDR
It was concluded that the preference for the fowl will develop in entirely dark-reared chicks that are allowed a period of time in a running wheel, but that this preference will appear earlier in chicks which have had experience of a complex visual pattern.
Spatial acuity of the chicken
The effects of age and visual experience on potentiation of responses in slices from the chick forebrain
TLDR
It is clear that both the age and past experience of the domestic chick affect the neurophysiological properties of slices of brain, tested in vitro.
The Mind Through Chick Eyes : Memory, Cognition and Anticipation
TLDR
Functional roles of these regions proved compatible with their anatomical counterparts in the mammalian brain, thus suggesting that the neural systems linking between the memorized past and the anticipated future have remained highly conservative through the evolution of the amniotic vertebrates during the last 300 million years.
Bindung von Quecksilber, Cadmium und Blei in pflanzlichen und tierischen Geweben im Hinblick auf die menschliche Ernährung
SummaryIn soil mercury and lead are mainly bound to higher molecular weight substances. Cadmium is rather bound to exchangeable positions. Thus the uptake and transport of cadmium is facilitated in

Effects of prior exposure to light on chicks' behaviour in the imprinting situation.
The effects of prior exposure to light on the imprinting process in domestic chicks.
TLDR
It is suggested that the constant light activated their visual pathways enabling the Light-exposed chicks to learn more than the Dark control chicks during the imprinting procedure.
Prior exposure to light and pecking accuracy in chicks.
TLDR
The superior responsiveness of chicks exposed to light cannot be attributed to handling or to the effects of temperature, and the social preferences of light-exposed chicks are restricted more rapidly to the familiar conspicuous object than those of dark-reared birds.
Changes in colored or flavored food preferences in chickens as a function of shock
TLDR
Electric shock proved to be an effective noxious stimulus for changing food preferences based on visual cues but not for those distinguishable by taste alone.
Color pecking preferences in White Leghorn chicks.
TLDR
Overall, findings suggest unlearned pecking preferences for short and long wavelengths, with minimums at green and peak preferences in blue-violet and orange-red regions.
Effectiveness of Different Colors in the Elicitation and Development of Approach Behavior in Chicks
Episodic and developmental relationships between stimulus colors and neonatal approach behavior were studied in 768 chicks. Simple two-dimensional flashing stimulus patterns of five different colors

TLDR
The aim of the first experiment was to determine whether retention of learning in chicks can be disrupted by postlearning ECS, and if so, how retention deficit depends on the interval between the learning trial and ECS.

The consolidation theory states that with the passage of time the engram of a recent learning experience grows increasingly resistant to disruption by amnesic treatment. The time required to reach
Receptive field development and individual experience
TLDR
Interest is reawakened in a classical hypothesis of developmental neurobiology: that individual experience participates to some extent in patterning the intricate interconnections of the nervous system.
