Abstract
Forty-eight male mice in 6 groups were studied. Conditioned taste aver sion (CTA) in mice was produced by various motions including cross-cou pled acceleration, rotation to two directions (with or without visual field) and linear acceleration. Deprived of water for 24 hours, the mi ce were exposed to motion immediately after drinking a novel solution, 0.15% saccharin. All groups received two pairings of CTA training rel ated to motion. The results showed that both of cross-coupled and rota tion produced frank CTA and former was far more obvious than the latte r. In addition, motion with visual field had a trend to intensify sick ness response.
