Role of the Insular Cortex in Morphine-Induced Conditioned Taste Avoidance
The present study investigated the role of the insular cortex (IC) in morphine-induced conditioned taste avoidance. The results of Experiment 1 revealed that IC lesions impaired taste neophobia, retarded acquisition of ...
Reduced palatability in drug-induced taste aversion: II. Aversive and rewarding unconditioned stimuli.
(American Psychological Association, 2012-06)
Drugs of abuse are known to reduce intake of a taste conditioned stimulus (CS), a behavioral response sometimes seen as paradoxical because the same drugs also serve as rewards in other behavioral procedures. In the ...
Inhibiting gustatory thalamus or medial amygdala has opposing effects on taste neophobia
Taste neophobia is a feeding system defense mechanism that limits consumption of an unknown, and therefore potentially dangerous, edible until the post-ingestive consequences are experienced. We found that transient ...
The effects of amygdala and cortical inactivation on taste neophobia
The current study examined the effects of transient inactivation of the basolateral amygdala (BLA; Experiment 1) and gustatory cortex (GC; Experiment 2) on the expression of taste neophobia and its recovery. We found that ...
