The experiments reported here were designed to study the orosensory factors contributing to the ingestion of sucrose/corn oil mixtures. When a flavor aversion was conditioned to the sucrose/corn oil mixture, the subsequent aversion to the mixture strongly generalized to the corn oil but very little to the sucrose. Rats conditioned with corn oil show a more profound aversion to the sucrose/corn oil mixture than rats conditioned with sucrose, indicating that the salient feature of the sucrose… CONTINUE READING
