CONDITIONED TASTE AVERSION

the correlation of the taste of liquid or food with a negative stimulant, resulting in a quite swift and everlasting antipathy toward, or at the very least, a diminished inclination for a specific taste. It tests classical theories of associative learning, since not may collaborations between sickness and food are necessary to generate the effect, the hesitation between the taste sensation and the subsequent feeling of illness can be quite lengthy, and the antipathy is very much immune to annihilation. Commonly referred to as learned taste aversion, taste-aversion learning, and toxicosis.

CONDITIONED TASTE AVERSION: "It is known that children who are forced to eat certain foods they dislike during childhood grow into adults who possess a strong displeasure for the same food- this is a common example of conditioned taste aversion."
