Progress in Psychobiology and Physiological Psychology: Volume 11 is a collection of studies that discuss certain topics in behavioral neuroscience from different experts in the field. The book is divided into four chapters. Chapter 1 discusses palatability of food as a response measure. Chapter 2 tackles the trigeminal system; trigeminal orosensation and ingestive reflexes; and the relationship of trigeminal denervation and operant behavior. Chapter 3 talks about the role of the stomach in the process of satiety, and Chapter 4 covers functional organization of X-, W-, and Y-cell pathways.
