Description of this data

These files contain lick timestamps, recorded on Med Associates equipment, in an experiment in which rats had access to either protein-containing and/or carbohydrate-containing solutions. Rats were maintained on either a protein-restricted diet or control diet. Data on body weight and food intake are also included.

In addition to data files, the zipped folder contains analysis scripts (written in Python 3.6) and metafiles which are used to index datafiles and assign individual data files to subjects/days.
