This chapter reviews the methodological and conceptual issues associated with some common behavioral procedures used to assess taste function. It focuses on laboratory rodents, but many of the principles can be generalized to other species. Topics discussed include stimulus preparation, intake tests, oromotor and somatic taste reactivity, brief-access taste test, and taste stimuli as conditioned cues.
