In Experiment 1, subjects were tested with one of three taste stimuli (alanine, saccharin, or quinine) and two nontaste stimuli (capsaicin and almond odor). Ibotenic acid lesions of the LPBN eliminated neophobia to alanine and saccharin but had no influence on the neophobic response to quinine… CONTINUE READING
