Maybe if you're old enough to recognize this term you're too old to be
surfing the internet, but...
LHS was a hot item 30-35 years ago (e.g. in J. Comp. Physiol. Psychol.)
but doubt a Medline search (especially if limited to Ovid disk) would
turn up much--wrong time, wrong journals.
I'd welcome the most recent reference and/or the most through OLD
reference, OR your personal experience as a brain surgeon on rats!
I'm especially interested in the exact details of the anorexia and/or
finickiness of the rats. It was said that they COULD be coaxed to eat
with a "palatable" diet (and then through graded steps to
self-sustained eating with a "normal" diet).
What EXACTLY is "palatable"? Chocolate has been mentioned, and I
coaxed one rat along with chocolate covered halvah, but do you know of
systematic studies on the defining characteristics? (sweetness?
