Taste Modulation of Fluid Intake

  • Douglas G. Mook
  • Nancy J. Kenney


In any discussion of “nonregulatory” or “nonhomeostatic” determinants of behavior, the influence of taste on ingestion is certain to receive at least a mention. And at first glance, the phenomena observed when animals are offered various sapid materials are impressive to one accustomed to think of animals as “finely tuned regulatory machines” (Emits and Corbit, 1973).
