Description Living in a group can be beneficial as it allows for social learning to facilitate life. Increased competition for food sources and access to mates however can also result in stress, which can negatively affect cognitive performance. In this project we will test how group size affects performance in a behavioural inhibition test during which guppies are tested for their ability for self-control.
