The preference for foods or fluids in rats is partly dependent on its postingestive consequences. Many studies have investigated postingestive effect of high caloric substances, such as carbohydrate or fat. In this study, we examined postingestive effect of L-glutamate at the preferable concentration using conditioned flavor preference paradigm. Adult male rats with chronic intragastric (IG) cannula were trained to drink a flavored solution (conditioned stimulus; CS+) paired with IG infusion of… CONTINUE READING
