    Markus Fendt
    Tierphysiologie, Universitat Tubingen, D 72076 Tubingen, Germany
    J Neurosci 23:23-8. 2003
    ..These results, and other findings in the literature, suggest that the BNST is critically involved in unlearned fear, whereas the amygdala is more involved in the acquisition and expression of learned fear...

    Iain S McGregor
    School of Psychology, University of Sydney, Sydney, New South Wales 2006, Australia
    J Neurosci 24:4134-44. 2004
    ..These findings also suggest the intriguing hypothesis that cat odor is processed by rats as a "pheromone-like" stimulus...
  3. ncbi request reprint The effects of predator odors in mammalian prey species: a review of field and laboratory studies
    Raimund Apfelbach
    Tierphysiologie, Zoologisches Institut, Universitat Tubingen, Auf der Morgenstelle 28, D 72076 Tubingen, Germany
    Neurosci Biobehav Rev 29:1123-44. 2005
    ..Recent research is starting to uncover the neural circuitry activated by predator odors, leading to hypotheses about how such activation leads to observable effects on reproduction, foraging and feeding...

    Theresa Clarin
    Institute of Neurobiology, Animal Physiology, University of Tubingen, Auf der Morgenstelle 28, D 72076 Tubingen, Germany
    Behav Brain Res 206:229-35. 2010
    ..Other parameters like, e.g. interaction profiles with different peptides, optical rotation of the polarized light--as seen in the enantiomers of an odorant--might also contribute to the quality of an odor...

    Markus Fendt
    Tierphysiologie, Zoologisches Institut, Universitat Tubingen, Auf der Morgenstelle 28, D 72076 Tubingen, Germany
    Neurosci Biobehav Rev 29:1145-56. 2005
    ..Finally, we compare these studies with those using a natural predator or predator odor to induce fear and discuss the possible use of TMT exposure in rodents as an animal model of unconditioned fear in humans...

    Thomas Endres
    Tierphysiologie, Zoologisches Institut, Universitat Tubingen, Tubingen, Germany
    Behav Neurosci 119:1004-10. 2005
    ..In addition, the authors tested the rats for dose dependency of TMT-induced freezing behavior. The study confirmed that behavioral changes observed during TMT exposure are caused by TMT-induced fear and are dose dependent...
