Adrenalectomy reduces peripheral neural responses to gustatory stimuli in the rat.


In the rat, sodium need leads to an increase in sodium intake, which depends on salt taste sensitivity. The adrenalectomized rat, because of excessive body sodium loss, has been an important animal model for studying the physiological mechanisms underlying salt ingestion. In order to investigate the mediation by peripheral taste responsivity of changes in… (More)
