Glucose- and fructose-conditioned flavor preferences in rats: Taste versus postingestive conditioning
Flavor preferences conditioned by glucose and fructose were compared using two training methods. With the simultaneous method preferences can be reinforced by the flavor and/or the postingestiveExpand

CD36 gene deletion reduces fat preference and intake but not post-oral fat conditioning in mice.
Several findings suggest the existence of a "fatty" taste, and the CD36 fatty acid translocase is a candidate taste receptor. The present study compared fat preference and acceptance in CD36 knockoutExpand

T1R3 taste receptor is critical for sucrose but not Polycose taste.
In addition to their well-known preference for sugars, mice and rats avidly consume starch-derived glucose polymers (e.g., Polycose). T1R3 is a component of the mammalian sweet taste receptor thatExpand

Reinforcement value of sucrose measured by progressive ratio operant licking in the rat
Progressive ratio (PR) schedules, which require increasing numbers of responses for successive reinforcements, are widely used to measure the reward value of foods, fluids, and drugs in operantExpand

Saccharin as a Sugar Surrogate Revisited
Two papers by George Collier are reviewed and replications and extensions of these data are presented. The first paper by Collier and Bolles (1968) reported the total caloric intake of rats duringExpand

Development of learned flavor preferences.
Rats, like humans, are born with only a few innate flavor preferences and aversions. Preferences retain great plasticity throughout the lifespan because they are sensitive to modification byExpand

Tasty high-fat and high-sugar foods induce overeating and obesity in animals. To separate the roles of oral and postoral factors in food preference and consumption, recent studies have used anExpand

Dopamine D1 and D2 antagonists reduce the acquisition and expression of flavor-preferences conditioned by fructose in rats
The effects of dopamine (DA) D(1) and D(2) receptor antagonists on the acquisition and expression of flavor-preferences conditioned by the sweet taste of fructose were examined. Food-restricted ratsExpand

Critical role of amygdala in flavor but not taste preference learning in rats
The role of the amygdala (AMY) in learning to associate complex flavor (taste + odor cues) with the oral and post‐oral properties of nutrients was examined. Rats with excitotoxic lesions of theExpand
