While gustation in the hamster has been extensively studied at the behavioral and physiological level, very little is known about the central anatomy of the taste system. The purpose of this study was to trace the connections of the parabrachial nucleus (PBN) in the golden Syrian hamster (Mesocricetus auratus) using wheat germ agglutinin-conjugated horseradish peroxidase. The PBN is the site of the second central synapse for the ascending gustatory system and receives taste afferents from the… CONTINUE READING
