Rats and other species exhibit food-anticipatory activity (FAA) to daily mealtime under circadian (24 h) food access schedules. A critical review of several explanatory models indicates that hourglass clocks and associative learning processes are inadequate to explain many properties of FAA in intact and suprachiasmatic nuclei ablated rodents. A computational learning model, involving circadian clock consultation and phase memory, accounts for some but not all of these properties. An… CONTINUE READING
