Abstract

Two experiments were conducted to assess the effects of lesions in the septal forebrain area of rats on the development and maintenance of a radiation-induced taste aversion. While the lesioned animals were found to drink more of the fluid used as a conditioned stimulus during X-radiation, no effect of the lesion on subsequent aversion to the stimulus was found. The data further restrict the generality of viewing the function of the septal forebrain area as inhibitory.
