Abstract

A simple circuit useful for the study of response duration and timing response in operant behavior in rats was described. Important features of the circuit include: a logic function to identify respondings with the preregistered duration, elimination of the premature reinforcement by the feeder operation during lever-pressing behavior, reinforcement after the complete release of the lever, simple design and inexpensive construction. Experimental results with and without the present circuit were also given.
