Taste Aversion and Taste Avoidance: Evidence for Different Processes in Rats and Shrews

Presenter: Linda A. Parker, Ph.D., Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

As one of our primary senses, taste plays a key role in our avoidance or acceptance of food, medicine or anything else that must be ingested. This reaction is complex, and the study of it reaches across the tradtiional boundaries of psychology, pharmacology, and neurobiology. Dr. Linda Parker is one of the leading researchers in theis field of interrelated disciplines, having pursued extensive work in how drugs modify the palatability of tastes and preferences for places.

    Psych Day will be held Thursday, April 16, 2015 in the Psychology Building Quad. Festivities include a graduate and volunteer fair, workshops, games and special speakers, beginning at 10:00 am. A buffet lunch will be offered for a small donation from 11:00 until 2:00. The keynote speaker, Dr. Collie Conoley, will present his research on Goal Focused Positive Psychotherapy at 4:00 pm in the Beach Auditorium.
