Odor similarity between stress-inducing odorants in wistar rats


Odor similarity to the odor of 4-mercapto-4-methyl-2-pentanone (I) was measured on eight rats by generalization of a conditioned avoidance response tocis- andtrans-8-mercapto-p-menthan-3-one (II and III), 3-mercapto-3-methyl-2-pentanone (V), andt-amyl mercaptan (VI). Previously, these odorants had been found to induce stress in rats in an open-field… (More)
