Sensitive Estimation of Flavor Preferences in STFP Using Cumulative Time Profiles
Authors:  Aditya Singh and J. Balaji, date: 11/05/2017, view: 4580, Q&A: 0
Social transmission of food preference (STFP) is observed among rodents between a demonstrator and a naïve hungry observer. During social interaction, hungry observer receives information about safety of the food consumed by the demonstrator. This ...
