    • Effects of Amygdala Inactivation on Affective Processing by the Nucleus Accumbens 

      Loriaux, Amy L. (2013-06-28)
      Inappropriate affect is a major feature of many psychological disorders. Recent progress in the field of affective neuroscience has led to a basic understanding of the brain regions involved in emotional processing. However, ...
    • Increased liking for a solution is not necessary for the attenuation of neophobia in rats 

      Neath, Karly N.; Limebeer, Cheryl L.; Reilly, Steve; Parker, Linda A. (American Psychological Association, 2010-06)
      Recent evidence suggests that liking and wanting of food rewards can be experimentally dissociated (e.g., Berridge, 1996); this dissociation extends to attenuated neophobia in the present study. Rats tend to eat less of ...
    • The role of orbitofrontal cortex during adolescent decisions 

      Horn-Amodeo, Leslie R. (2016-07-01)
      Adolescence is a transitional stage hallmarked by decisions that are increasingly impulsive and consequently dangerous. While an increase in impulsive behavior is normal in this stage of development, failure to inhibit ...
    • Role of the Gustatory Thalamus in Taste Learning 

      Arthurs, Joe; Reilly, Steve (Elsevier Inc., 2013-08)
      The present study re-examined the involvement of the gustatory thalamus (GT) in the acquisition of drug- and toxin-induced conditioned taste aversions (CTAs) using a standardized procedure involving 15-min taste trials in ...
    • Role of the Insular Cortex in Morphine-Induced Conditioned Taste Avoidance 

      Lin, Jian-You; Arthurs, Joe; Reilly, Steve (Elsevier, 2011-04-12)
      The present study investigated the role of the insular cortex (IC) in morphine-induced conditioned taste avoidance. The results of Experiment 1 revealed that IC lesions impaired taste neophobia, retarded acquisition of ...
