Individual differences in schedule-induced polydipsia: Neuroanatomical dopamine divergences
Autoradiography analysis of D1 and D2 dopamine receptors and c-Fos activity were performed in brain of rats classified as low drinkers (LD) and high drinkers (HD) according to schedule-inducedExpand

Adjunctive behaviors are operants
Adjunctive behaviors such as schedule-induced polydipsia are said to be induced by periodic delivery of incentives, but not reinforced by them. That standard treatment assumes that contingency isExpand

Food-deprived rats were exposed to a fixed-time 60-s schedule of food-pellet presentation and developed schedule-induced drinking. Using an ABA reversal design, three experiments investigated theExpand

Effects of drugs on the temporal distribution of schedule-induced polydipsia in rats
Drinking was induced in food-deprived rats by a fixed-time 1-min schedule of food presentation. With three rats, d-amphetamine (0.25, 0.5, 1.0, and 2.0 mg/kg) led to a dose-related increase inExpand

Rodent Model of Activity‐Based Anorexia
Activity‐based anorexia (ABA) consists of a procedure that involves the simultaneous exposure of animals to a restricted feeding schedule, while free access is allowed to an activity wheel. UnderExpand

Rate‐dependency hypothesis and the rate‐decreasing effects of d‐amphetamine on schedule‐induced drinking
The high levels of drinking induced by intermittent food-reinforcement schedules are dose-dependently reduced by acute doses of d-amphetamine. The present study evaluated whether the effects ofExpand

Antipunishment effects of diazepam on two levels of suppression of schedule-induced drinking in rats
Food-deprived Wistar rats were exposed to a fixed-time (FT) 60-s food delivery schedule until they developed schedule-induced drinking. Rats were matched in pairs according to their licking rates andExpand

Acquisition of schedule-induced polydipsia by rats in proximity to upcoming food delivery
Food-deprived rats that receive intermittent delivery of small amounts of food develop excessive drinking-specifically, schedule-induced polydipsia (SIP). A main characteristic of SIP is itsExpand

Schedule-induced polydipsia in the Spontaneously Hypertensive Rat and its relation to impulsive behaviour
Eight Spontaneously Hypertensive Rat (SHR), 8 Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) and 8 Wistar rats, all male, maintained at 80-85% of their free-feeding weight by controlled access to food, were exposed to a seriesExpand
