What is the max time duration between stimulus and reward that can make reward-based learning in animals?

Answers

The chance of learning a specific stimulus-response connection depends on the specific animal, stimulus, response, and timing of the reward.As a rule of thumb, the probability is lowered with the complexity of the stimulus and the required response, and increased with the intelligence of the animal and the relevance and attractiveness of the reward.Higher (more intelligent) animals may recognize more complex stimuli, perform more complex responses, and (sometimes) realize the benefits of postponing the satisfaction by the reward.But generally, the probability of learning decays exponentially with the length of the interval between the response and reward (or punishment)!
