Abstract: Schedule-induced drinking was studied in four male albino rats when food was presented at regular intervals ranging from 15 to 480 secs. Water was available at all times during the course of the experiment. Several measures of schedule-induced drinking were examined as a function of the interfood interval. The measures were referred to as reflecting either the strength of drinking or its temporal location. The temporal location was assessed by determining the frequency distribution of both time between pellet delivery and the first lick (initiation time) and time between pellet delivery and the last lick (termination time).
