The dataset contains behaviour of 43 pairs of rats performing the Prosocial Choice Task (PCT), as presented in . In this two-choice task, one decision-maker rat can choose in each trial between providing food reward only to itself (selfish choice) or both to itself and a conspecific recipient (prosocial choice). Pairs were divided in different groups with the aim to assess how familiairty of the recipient, sex of the dyad, and the dominance relationship affected rats' prosocial behaviour.
