Baitshyness retention in rats with olfactory-bulb ablations

Stephen H. Hobbs, Ralph L. Elkins

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Bilateral lesions of the main and accessory olfactory bulbs were produced to assess the effects of bulbar damage on the retention of preoperatively conditioned flavor aversions. Bulbectomized rats retained the aversion as well as control animals and showed comparable rates of extinction. Additionally and unexpectedly, flavor aversions developed in some surgical control rats which had not been administered the illness-inducing drug.
