What are rats interested in during experiments?
This chapter considers animals’ capacities for interest and disinterest, and how the latter often classifies them as antibehaviourist or unsuitable for analysis. The author eschews traditional behaviourist understandings of stimuli and response for a broader concept of what might interest an animal beyond the incentives and objectives offered it by humans, such as reward derived from negotiating social relationship with its brethren and humans.
