What in your right mind would make you do that?? Proximate and ultimate mechanisms of plasticity in mating strategies by the Trinidadian guppy (Poecilia reticulata)
All animals must make decisions every day and often these decisions are directly linked to fitness outcomes, meaning better decisions are expected to be associated with higher fitness. Rapid decisions between alternative strategies allow animals to behave more appropriately for their environment. Thus, selection will shape not only how animals will respond to cues at different timescales, but also what cues they respond to at different timescales. Neural substrates of decisions are a vital component for our understanding of how experiences on different timescale influence decision-making strategies. ...
