We examined whether pheromones released by reproductive behaviors (mating and egg-laying) affect feeding behavior. A preliminary experiment demonstrated that the quantity of food eaten can be used to measure the effects of pheromones on feeding. Using this measure, we then showed that Aplysia that were prevented from mating, but that were in the same(More)
Isolating a sexually mature Aplysia fasciata for either 1 or 24 hr immediately after training that a food is inedible blocks the subsequent expression of memory measured 24 hr later. Isolation that is delayed for 1 hr after training, but not for 12 hr after training, is also effective in blocking memory. Isolation affects memory because of a specific effect(More)

2 studies are reported in which 12-13-year-old girls, half of whom were premenarcheal and half post-menarcheal, responded to pictures of infants. In study 1, the 40 postmenarcheal girls preferred pictures of infants to those of adults more often than did their 40 premenarcheal peers. In the second study, 20 boys, 20 premenarcheal girls, and 20(More)
Pheromones released during mating and egg laying in Aplysia facilitate various aspects of behavior. We now show that the chemosensory rhinophores sense these pheromones. Ablating the rhinophores causes a significant decrease in the time spent mating. In addition, the lesion blocks the increases of feeding in response to pheromones released by egg cordons(More)
