State-dependent valuation learning in fish: banded tetras prefer stimuli associated with greater past deprivation
Humans and some birds and insects sometimes prefer alternatives associated with greater past cost or need, sometimes affording losses. It has been proposed that this is widespread because learning may include knowledge about both the physical properties of alternatives and state-dependent fitness gains.
