The impact of learning opportunities on the development of learning and decision making: an experiment with passerine birds

Isabel Rojas-Ferrer & Julie Morand-Ferron
Learning abilities have been shown to be influenced by the developmental context, namely through experiments that imposed severe nutritional and/or environmental constraints (i.e. lack of enrichment). In contrast, we know little on the impact of opportunities for learning on the development of cognition in animals, despite that such opportunities are known to influence human cognitive development. We exposed young zebra finches (Taenopygia guttata) (n=26) to one of three experimental conditions, i.e. an environment where (i)...
