Olfactory sensitivity for aliphatic esters in squirrel monkeys and pigtail macaques
Using a conditioning paradigm, the olfactory sensitivity of four squirrel monkeys and three pigtail macaques for a homologous series of aliphatic esters (ethyl acetate to n-octyl acetate) andExpand

Detecting danger—or just another odorant? Olfactory sensitivity for the fox odor component 2,4,5-trimethylthiazoline in four species of mammals
2,4,5-trimethylthiazoline (TMT) is a volatile component of the anal gland secretion of the red fox and elicits behavioral and physiological fear responses in the rat. Using instrumental conditioningExpand
