Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In two experiments we examined the influence of response and time factors on the speed of acquisition of temporal control on FI schedules. In Experiment 1, prior exposure to FT accelerated the development of temporal control on FI schedules of the same temporal value. It was also found that the slower acquisition on FI with prior RT was similar to that of rats with prior standard training. In Experiment 2, prior exposure to FT accelerated the development of temporal control on a FI schedule with a threefold increase in temporal value. Additionally, it was found that with prior FI 30s training, acquisition of temporal control on FI 90s was even faster than with prior FT 30s. Measures of head-entries into the feeder along the experiments indicated that temporal control was already developed during the periodic but not during the non-periodic histories and that this control transferred to lever press during FI testing phase.
