In Experiment 1, rats trained to avoid drinking in the presence of a compound odor (benzyl acetate) and taste (sucrose) conditional stimulus (CS) lost the taste habit but retained the odor habit following gustatory neocortex (GN) ablation. Conversely, olfactory bulb ablation resulted in loss of the odor habit but retention of the taste habit. In Experiment(More)
Rats lacking gustatory neocortex (n = 24) and normal rats (n = 24) were familiarized to either hydrochloric acid (10(-1.6) M) or quinine hydrochloride (10(-4) M) solutions during free-drinking trials. They were trained subsequently to avoid either the familiar or the novel taste stimulus, using a balanced design, by pairing the to-be-associated taste with(More)
Additional analyses of ratings by 98 male and 102 female college students assigned to one of four odor conditions showed no significant correlations for the methyl anthranilate or skatole odor conditions, but the pattern of correlations for men and women was different in the alpha androstenone condition, e.g., if men found alpha androstenone pleasant they(More)
