The present study examined the effects of D(1) and D(2) antagonists on flavor-preference conditioning by the sweet taste of sucrose. All sessions were conducted under sham-feeding conditions to minimize post-ingestive influences. The rats were trained in alternating, one-bottle sessions to sham-feed a 16% sucrose solution containing one novel flavor (CS+) and a less-preferred 0.2% saccharin solution containing a different flavor (CS-). Three groups of food-restricted rats were treated with… CONTINUE READING
