Abstract

The current studies examined basolateral (BLA) and central nucleus (CNA) amygdala lesioned rats in flavour-taste learning. In Experiment 1 rats received access to a flavour paired with the palatable sweet taste of fructose while in Experiment 2 the same rats received access to a different flavour paired with the unpalatable bitter taste of quinine. BLA, but not CNA, lesions disrupted appetitive flavour-taste learning and prevented aversive flavour-taste learning.
