Cued Rat Gambling Task
Authors:  Michael M. Barrus and Catharine A. Winstanley, date: 02/05/2017, view: 1438, Q&A: 0
The ability of salient cues to serve as powerful motivators has long been recognized in models of drug addiction, but little has been done to investigate their effects on complex decision making. The Cued rat Gambling Task (CrGT) is an operant ...
