Abstract : Techniques capable of inducing excessive alcohol ingestion by squirrel monkeys were experimentally examined. Using primarily schedule-induced drinking, it was possible to engender the drinking of substantial quantities of alcohol. The effects of alcohol on various behaviors was also examined, as were the effects of chloridazepoxide on alcohol drinking. Alcohol increased punished responding, and decreased responding maintained by aversive stimuli. Chlordiazepoxide increased the amount of alcohol ingested. (Author)
