Dataset for "Assessing the motivational value of infant video clips on chimpanzees through discrimination learning task"
We investigated the reward value of conspecific infant videos compared with that of adult ones in chimpanzees. We adopted a novel approach, a simultaneous discrimination task with differential sensory reinforcement. In Experiments 1 and 2, we tested if watching conspecific infant videos is more rewarding than watching adult ones. In Experiment 3, we tested if chimpanzees prefer to watch any conspecific videos over a blank screen. Here we provide the data and R code.
