Attention and Decision-Making in Echolocation Matching-to-Sample by a Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops Truncatus): The Microstructure of Decision-Making
In delayed matching-to-sample (DMTS) the subject is presented with a sample at one time and must then pick a matching comparison stimulus from a set of alternatives. The choice the subject makes in discriminating among the comparison stimuli, is contingent on the identity of the sample that preceded them in the trial.
