It is possible that the shorter delays employed by Roesch et al. , 2010) afforded enhanced sensitivity for detecting age-related differences in preference for delayed rewards. It will be important in future work to differentiate at shorter delay intervals between the influences of age on time valuation and time perception. Studies employing peak interval procedures show that age can influence the subjective passage of time in rodents such that perceived delays are shorter than the actual delays (Lejeune, Ferrara, Soffie, Bronchart, & Wearden, 1998; Meck, Church, & Wenk, 1986), and time perception has the potential to alter the degree to which such delays reduce reward value (Galtress, Garcia, & Kirkpatrick, 2012; Wittmann & Paulus, 2008).
