In humans, men show more choices for the advantageous option than women. Here, we investigated sex differences in a rat model of the IGT (r-IGT). In our r-IGT mildly food-deprived rats learn to differentiate a long-term advantageous arm from a long-term disadvantageous arm differing in frequency and amount of sugar pellets as well as unpalatable but not uneatable quinine-treated sugar pellets. We also used a T-maze discrimination procedure in which rats learn to differentiate a high from a low reward arm to further explore sex differences in reward-related decision-making. In line with human data, male rats showed a stronger task progression of choices for the advantageous option than female rats. Furthermore, male rats showed more win-stay and less lose-shift behaviour in the advantageous arm as the task progressed than female rats. Whilst both male and female rats had a stronger preference for the high over the small reward arm in the T-maze, males increased this preference over sessions, whilst females did not. These data are discussed in relation to sex differences in processing rewards and punishments.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-07-02T09:07:57Z</dc:date> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>van der Knaap, Lisette</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-07-02T09:07:57Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2012-10-01</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Jolles, Jolle W.</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>van den Bos, Ruud</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/46197"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>van den Bos, Ruud</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>van der Knaap, Lisette</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Male and female Wistar rats differ in decision-making performance in a rodent version of the Iowa Gambling Task</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Baars, Annemarie</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>de Visser, Leonie</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Jolles, Jolle W.</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Baars, Annemarie</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
