Sample text

Attempts to develop laboratory tasks for human adults that involve real-time delays and rewards have not been particularly successful (however, see Shiels et al. 2009; Reynolds and Schiffbauer 2004; Reynolds et al. 2006b). One problem with developing real-time tasks in human adults is that they often do not discount when ITIs are used. In animal studies, the rate at which the animal can make choices between immediate and delayed rewards is held constant by imposition of an ITI. This ITI ensures that the delay to the next choice is the same after choosing either the immediate or delayed alternatives.

The indifference point is operationalized as the median amount of water available on the adjusting alternative during the last half of the test session. Forced trials are not included in this calculation. Smaller indifference points, indicating greater discounting of the delayed reward, are the primary measure of impulsivity on this task. The AdjAmt procedure is based on a procedure developed by Mazur (1987) for pigeons which adjusted the delay to the reinforcer. B. Richards et al. adjusts the amount or magnitude of the reinforcer.

However, as it is defined, behaviors that are labeled as impulsive often occur in situations, where past experience and training have exposed the individual to the consequences of their actions. The behavior would not be considered impulsive if the individual is naïve to the possible maladaptive consequences of their behavior. For example, the failure of a child with ADHD to wait in line is only considered to be impulsive when it is known that the child has a history of being trained to wait in line.
