Nerve fibers sensitive to ionic taste stimuli in chorda tympani of the rat.
Hypotheses about the peripheral basis for the sense of taste in mammals have been based to a considerable degree on the determined sensibilities of the nerve fibers in the chorda tympani of the ratExpand

Changes in salt intake after lesions of the area postrema and the nucleus of the solitary tract in rats
Several reports have linked the area postrema (AP), a circumventricular organ in the dorsal medulla, to the control of sodium regulation. To clarify its role further we examined the effects of APExpand

Response latency to lingual taste stimulation distinguishes neuron types within the geniculate ganglion.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of response latency in discrimination of chemical stimuli by geniculate ganglion neurons in the rat. Accordingly, we recorded single-cell 5-sExpand

Sodium deprivation alters neural responses to gustatory stimuli
The effects of sodium deprivation for 10 d, a period sufficient to induce sodium appetite, on gustatory nerve discharges in rats were determined. Chorda tympani responses to concentration series ofExpand

High dietary NaCl early in development enhances mean arterial pressure of adult rats
We investigated the long-term influence of early dietary NaCl on adult mean arterial pressure (MAP) and heart rate (HR), assessed continuously for 7 weeks when fed water and chow containing 1% NaClExpand

Sex differences in behavioral taste responses to and ingestion of sucrose and NaCl solutions by rats
Sex differences in the ingestion of food and concentrated NaCl solutions by rats have been investigated for more than a quarter of a century, though the underlying mechanism(s) and the role ofExpand

Estrogen increases the taste threshold for sucrose in rats
Anecdotal and empirical evidence suggests that females' preferences for sweet foods are affected by hormonal fluctuations across the reproductive cycle. In rats, the preference for sweet foods mayExpand

Temperature modulates taste responsiveness and stimulates gustatory neurons in the rat geniculate ganglion.
In humans, temperature influences taste intensity and quality perception, and thermal stimulation itself may elicit taste sensations. However, peripheral coding mechanisms of taste have generallyExpand

Anion size modulates salt taste in rats.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of anion size and the contribution of the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) and the transient receptor potential vanilloid-1 (TRPV1) channelExpand

Nighttime feeding likely alters morning metabolism but not exercise performance in female athletes.
The timing of morning endurance competition may limit proper pre-race fueling and resulting performance. A nighttime, pre-sleep nutritional strategy could be an alternative method to target theExpand
