A hyperreactivity to the sensory qualities of a food, i.e., finickiness, is a defining feature of the ventromedial hypothalamic (VMH) lesion syndrome. The precise anatomical locus mediating this disturbance has not been determined. This study examines the hypothesis that interruption of amygdalo-hypothalamic connections (either ascending or descending) via the stria terminalis (ST) is involved in VMH lesion-induced finickiness. Taste reactivity was assessed in animals with VMH lesions, ST knife… CONTINUE READING
