It's a simple FI procedure. You can set the maximum duration, the interval and the time of the first pellet. I wasn't sure if I should even post it, but you never know who likes it or who can improve it. I originally used this program to determine dominance in cages of four rats. We put two rats in a skinnerbox at a time. Using a camera we counted which rats got the most rewards. For each 'win', a rat got a point. The rat that got the most points wins. Ties were settled by individual result.
