Abstract

Testosterone has previously been implicated in memory and attentional processes in the domestic chick (Andrew et al., 1981). Imprinting is a type of learning by which exposure of a chick to an object results in the restriction of the chick’s preference to that object. Is imprinting influenced by testosterone?
