Reinforcement learning theory reveals the cognitive requirements for solving the cleaner fish market task

Andres Quiñones, Olof Leimar, Arnon Lotem & Redoaun Bshary
Learning is an adaptation that allows individuals to respond to environmental stimuli in ways that improve their reproductive outcomes. The degree of sophistication in learning mechanisms potentially explains variation in behavioural responses. Here, we present a model of learning that is inspired by documented intra- and interspecific variation in the performance in a simultaneous two-choice task, the ‘biological market task’. The task presents a problem that cleaner fish often face in nature: the decision of...
