Surrogate Delay Discounting Through Observation?

This study aims to replicate and extend previous findings which suggest that a potential source of individual differences in delay discounting may be observation of past behavior. Many socially significant behaviors, in particular cigarette smoking, are related to individual differences in delay discounting. The present study seeks to explore some potential sources of these individual differences.
