Taste reactivity in the hamster


Behavioral displays to gustatory stimuli in newborn rat pups.

It is suggested that the gustatory system becomes functionally mature during the first postnatal days, and that this functionality occurs before the structural development of all taste buds is complete.

Taste reactivity to alcohol and basic tastes in outbred mice.

Data provide the first reported taste reactivity responses of mice to orally infused taste solutions and can be compared with the extant data available in rats and can also be used as a basis for exploring taste factors in genetically defined mouse populations.



Taste Stimuli: A Behavioral Categorization

The selective patterns of generalization to various chemicals, obtained in rats after radiation-induced gustatory-avoidance conditioning against single chemicals, were used to evaluate qualitative

I think it probable that some of the dove's instincts include an element which is even a tropism as described by Loeb, but with few if any exceptions among the instincts of doves, this reflex action constitufes only a part of each instinct in which it is present.

Taste Stimuli: Quality Coding Time

Rats conditioned to avoid drinking 300 millimolar NaCl recognized and rejected this solution within 250 to 600 milliseconds of onset of stimulus, a period containing the phasic portion of the

Structure, Movement, and Myography of the Feeding Apparatus of the Mallard (Anas Platyrhynchos L.) a Study in Functional Anatomy

The conclusion reached by ERNST (1963) concerning the absence of storage of elasticity in tetanically activated pinnate muscles, was modified for in vivo active pinnates muscles such that for a very short time during very fast stretching and motoneuronal activity, elastic energy as such is stored and is very briefly available.

Tongue activity during respiration, jaw opening, and swallowing in cat.

Some of the factors involved in the control of tongue position have been investigated. The electromyographic activity reported here provides evidence that genioglossus, the protrusive muscle of the

A rapid method for permanent implantation of an intraoral fistula in rats

By using polyethylene tubing instead of metal tubing, a permanent intraoral fistula can be implanted in rats without drilling through bone or shaping the tubing. A detailed description of the
