  1. pmc Meal patterns of cats encountering variable food procurement cost
    G Collier
    Department of Psychology, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey 08903, USA
    J Exp Anal Behav 67:303-10. 1997
    ..Therefore, the time window over which the consequences of behavior can affect behavior is longer than often conceived, at least in economies in which the animal controls its intake and the frequency, size, and distribution of its meals...
  2. pmc Patch choice as a function of procurement cost and encounter rate
    G Collier
    Department of Psychology, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey 08903, USA
    J Exp Anal Behav 69:5-16. 1998
    ..The rats responded to this increased cost by reducing the frequency and increasing the size of meals at both patches and thereby limited total daily foraging cost and conserved total intake...
  3. ncbi request reprint The relation between meal size and the time between meals: effects of cage complexity and food cost
    G Collier
    Department of Psychology, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ 08854 8020, USA
    Physiol Behav 67:339-46. 1999
    ..We conclude the regulation of food intake cannot be explained by models relying on a regular relationship between meal size and intermeal interval...
  4. ncbi request reprint Sucrose intake as a function of its cost and the cost of chow
    G Collier
    Department of Psychology, Rutgers University, 152 Frelinghuysen Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854, USA
    Physiol Behav 70:477-87. 2000
    ..Selection appears to be guided first by caloric requirements and the relative cost of calories, then by nutrient requirements and the relative cost of nutrients, and finally by taste...
  5. pmc The currency of procurement cost
    George Collier
    Department of Psychology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Piscataway 08854, USA
    J Exp Anal Behav 78:31-61. 2002
    ..These results suggest that time is a critical currency of procurement cost in rats...
  6. ncbi request reprint The paradox of satiation
    George Collier
    Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, NJ 08854, USA
    Physiol Behav 82:149-53. 2004
    ..Meal size also varies as a function of the amount of the resource consumed and the animal's requirements for that resource. The paradox of satiation is that it is both a tool for economizing and a consequence of feeding...
  7. ncbi request reprint Taste, intake rate, and food choice in rats
    D F Johnson
    Department of Psychology, Rutgers University, 152 Frelinghuysen Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854, USA

  1. DETERMINANTS OF CHOICE
    George Collier; Fiscal Year: 2001
    ..Knowledge of the fundamental processes by which environmental and physiological factors interact to affect behavioral choice is prerequisite for a complete analysis of human feeding and regulation and their associated disorders. ..
