Abstract : Parabiotic rat pairs with a skin-vascular anastomosis were used to test for a radiation-induced transferrable humoral factor which would motivate aversive conditioning in a non-irradiated (shielded) recipient. The shielded partner, by tasting saccharin-flavored fluid shortly after its partner was X-irradiated (360 R), was aversively conditioned to saccharin. This was interpreted as evidence for a humoral factor. (Author)
