A: I did a study recently with one of my doctoral students where we tracked for 35 contiguous days--the full menstrual cycle--every imaginable consummatory behavior
a woman engages in across those 35 days.
Variety may have a general effect on consummatory behavior
Once action has been initiated, the interpretant moves toward consummatory behavior
, that is, action that is completed by eating the pineapple.
However, some researchers are debating whether these compounds can affect alcohol-reinforced behavior without affecting consummatory behavior
In anticipatory contrast, there are repeated (typically one a day) experiences with the shift in magnitude of reinforcement and the measure of contrast involves consummatory behavior
that occurs prior to the anticipated change in reinforcement value.
No differences have been found in basic consummatory behavior
between early separated animals and comparison groups (Iwasaki, Inoue, Kiriike, & Hikiji, 2000; Matthews, Hall, et al.
As such, it will provide the most proximal information on the brain, the organ that controls alcohol consummatory behavior
Reward-dependent suppression or facilitation of consummatory behavior
1988} Conditioning of appetitive and consummatory behavior
in male Japanese quail.
Thus, alcohol consumption in rats and other rodents normally follows a distinct circadian pattern that coincides with the animals' general activity and consummatory behavior
The videos were reinforcing because they produced observing behavior that functioned as a form of consummatory behavior
, which made the use of a backup reinforcer unnecessary.
In the first experiment we examined locomotor activity shortly after LPS administration in 20-day-old preweanling rats and monitored weight gain for 3 days as an indirect measure of consummatory behavior
