Soluciones Integradas relacionadas


Social transmission of food preference is a test that is used in rodents to assess memory processes as well as social interaction ability.

The test is based on the fact that rodents are able to learn about potential food sources by sampling those sources on the breath of littermates. This task requires a demonstrator, previously exposed to a scented food, which interacts with an observer to transmit it its food exposure experience. If social transmission of food preference has occurred, the observer will preferentially consume the same diet that was fed to the demonstrator when it will confronted to a choice.
