# rmx-s-behav: delay discounting

<< 'Delay discounting' is the tendency, given the choice, to take a smaller reward that is available immediately, instead of a larger reward that will be delivered in the future >>

<< delay discounting is strongly influenced by our genetic makeup. That is, it is a trait that can be inherited >>

<< preliminary data suggest that these 'impulsivity genes' may include genes coding for enzymes that synthesize the neurotransmitter serotonin and receptors where serotonin binds in the brain >>
