dc.description.abstract The purpose of the current study was to investigate the effects of nonassociative cues on taste aversion learning at different intervals of time. Specifically, novel and familiar environments were used to determine the effect of nonassociative cues on taste aversion. Thirty-two male Holtzman-derived albino rats served as participants. Conditioning consisted of a 15-min exposure to a .15% saccharin solution followed by an IP injection of .15M solution of LiCl. Test groups differed on conditioning/testing environment and the time between conditioning and testing. Results indicated that rats conditioned and tested in a novel environment consumed significantly less saccharin than all other groups. Implications for retention interval differences were discussed. .-' en_US
