Portuguese Abstract: Animals exhibit activity cycles that repeat over days. The most noteworthy cyclical behaviors are relatedto forraging, which generally occur at the same times and locations. The synchronization of animal activ-ities via the association of different places at different times for the occurrence of relevant biologicalevents is known as time-place learning (TPL). In the present study, we used zebrafish (Danio rerio) to testtime-place learning based on a different stimulus: social reinforcement. Fish were not only able to asso-ciate time and place of the social stimulus, but also displayed anticipatory activity prior to the arrival ofthe stimulus. Furthermore, we show that the group of conspecifics is an relevant stimulus for time-placelearning tasks, while other studies have only used food
