    Acta Paediatr 93:1560-2. 2004
    ..Maternal odours stimulate breastfeeding activity and are implicated in individual recognition. CONCLUSION: Skin-to-skin contact and exposure to maternal odours facilitate infants' adaptation to the early postnatal environment...

    Physiol Behav 67:459-62. 1999
    ..Nonetheless, all three odors elicited more pronounced behavioral responses than did the water control stimulus. This method allows rapid testing of individual chicks for odor detection and discrimination...

    R H Porter
    UMR 6073 PRC, Laboratoire de Comportement, INRA CNRS Université de Tours, 37380 Nouzilly, France
    Physiol Behav 77:151-4. 2002
    ..Once the non-parturient mares accepted their foster foal, their maternal behavior resembled that of control mothers. The positive effect of VCS on maternal acceptance may reflect a release of oxytocin triggered by this treatment...

    Laboratoire d étude du comportement animal, URA CNRS Inra 1291, Nouzilly, France
    Reprod Nutr Dev 38:441-8. 1998
    ..Chicks become familiar with specific odors as a function of early exposure. Differences between the behavior of exposed and naive chicks in the presence of orange odor may reflect neophobic responses by the controls...

    O Romantshik
    Department of Paediatrics, University of Tartu, Tartu, Estonia
    Acta Paediatr 96:372-6. 2007
    ..To test the hypothesis that a brief window of time immediately after delivery may be a particularly sensitive period for olfactory learning by human neonates...
