Context-specific response inhibition and differential impact of a learning bias in a lizard

Szabo, Birgit; Noble, Daniel WA; Whiting, Martin J.


Response inhibition (inhibiting prepotent responses) is needed for reaching a more favourable goal in situations where reacting automatically would be detrimental. Inhibiting prepotent responses to resist the temptation of a stimulus in certain situations, such as a novel food item, can directly affect an animal’s survival. In humans and dogs, response inhibition varies between contexts and between individuals. We used two contextually different experiments to investigate response inhibition in...[Show more]
