The model proved relatively weak at resolving colony divisions among multiple sites, suggesting either limits to the ants' ability to reach consensus, or an aspect of their behavior not captured in our model.
The hydrolyzed sheep and alpaca skins had a high content of macronutrients with an acceptable apparent digestibility of nutrients, making them a viable alternative to improve the nutritive value of more economical feeds for rainbow trout feed.
This paper is primarily concerned with the mathematical aspects of a forthcoming work focused on the agricultural viewpoints. As for future mathematical research plans, the results will be compared with models based on factor analysis and linear regression.
Here we tested the predictions of these different mechanisms by conducting a systematic retrospective analysis of all cocaine versus saccharin choice experiments conducted in rats in our laboratory over the past 12 years. Overall, we found that rats engage a deliberative goal-directed mechanism after limited training, but shift to a SCM-like response selection mechanism after more extended training.
