The neural/cephalic phase reflexes in the physiology of nutrition
The cephalic phase of nutrition refers to a set of food intake-associated autonomic and endocrine responses to the stimulation of sensory systems mainly located in the oropharyngeal cavity. TheseExpand

Electrical stimulation of the insular cortex induces flavor-preferences in rats
The present study examined the role of the Insular cortex (IC) in flavor-guided behavior. For that purpose, a flavored stimulus was paired with delayed electrical stimulation of this region. InExpand

Electrical intracerebral stimulation of the area postrema on taste aversion learning
The structural characteristics of the area postrema, its anatomical connections, participation in the detection of emesis-provoking substances and the effects of area postrema lesions on tasteExpand

Concurrent conditioned taste aversion: A learning mechanism based on rapid neural versus flexible humoral processing of visceral noxious substances
Taste aversion learning (TAL) consists of the avoidance of a taste previously associated with a noxious visceral stimulus. Clinical and experimental studies suggest that this adaptive process can beExpand

Dorsomedial pallium lesions impair taste aversion learning in goldfish
The present work shows that the dorsomedial telencephalic pallium of teleost fish, proposed as homologous to the amygdala of mammals, is involved in taste aversion learning (TAL). To analyze theExpand

Effects of medullary afferent vagal axotomy and area postrema lesions on short-term and long-term NaCl-induced taste aversion learning
This series of experiments demonstrates a functional dissociation between the area postrema (AP) and the vagus nerve in short-term taste aversion learning (TAL). Although medullary axotomy of theExpand

Lesions of the lateral parabrachial nuclei disrupt aversion learning induced by electrical stimulation of the area postrema
The research about the neural basis of taste aversion learning (TAL) has pointed out the area postrema (AP) as a fundamental structure implied in the processing of certain toxic stimuli. Likewise,Expand

The functional relevance of the lateral parabrachial nucleus in lithium chloride-induced aversion learning
Lesions to the lateral parabrachial nucleus (PBN), one of the subnuclei that make up the pontine parabrachial complex, impairs the acquisition of taste aversion learning (TAL) with LiCl as the toxicExpand

Medullary afferent vagal axotomy disrupts NaCl-induced short-term taste aversion learning.
The effect of medullary afferent vagal axotomy on NaCl-induced short-term and long-term taste aversion learning (TAL) was examined to assess the relevance of the vagus nerve in drug-induced TAL. TheExpand

The Functional Relevance of Medial Parabrachial Nucleus in Intragastric Sodium Chloride-Induced Short-Term (Concurrent) Aversion Learning
The functional meaning of the visceral information processing in the medial parabrachial nucleus (PBNm) was analyzed in this study through a short-term aversion learning task. In this short-term taskExpand
