OriginEdit

James A. Dinsmoor was an influential experimental psychologist who did much of his work on behavioral conditioning. He took many cues from the work of B. F. Skinner, who performed experiments on pigeon behavior and conditioning in WWII. Dinsmoor himself is known to have worked with rats, and how they learned to press a button to recieve food and other such rewards.

It's assumed the artifact came about as an accidental byproduct of his enthusiastic experiments.

EffectsEdit

The artifact is a simple copper dinner bell with a rope hanging from the clapper. Anyone who hears the bell will develop a ravenous hunger, and will rush towards the sound in an almost primal response. The chime seems to be unnaturally loud, though it seems to have trouble in enclosed spaces. The ringer is not affected by the bells effects.
