    In Experiment 1, pigeons chose between variable- and fixed-interval schedules. The timer for one schedule was reset by a reinforcement on that schedule or on either schedule. In both cases, the pigeons timed reinforcement on each schedule from trial onset. The data further suggest that their behavior reflects two independent processes: one deciding when a response should be emitted and responsible for the timing of the overall activity; the other what this response should be and responsible for the allocation of behavior between the two response keys. Results from Experiment 2, which studied choice between two fixed-interval schedules, supported those two conclusions. These results have implications for the study of operant choice in general.
