    Department of Psychology, University of Haifa, Haifa 31905, Israel
    Physiol Behav 103:453-8. 2011
    ..These psychological dimensions of salt intake are only now being addressed experimentally, and the ramifications for its control, and for individuals vulnerable to depression or stress, require clarification...
  4. doi request reprint The excess salt appetite of humans is not due to sodium loss in adulthood
    Micah Leshem
    Department of Psychology, University of Haifa, Haifa 31905, Israel

    Micah Leshem
    Psychology Department, University of Haifa, Israel
    Neurosci Biobehav Rev 33:1-17. 2009
    ..Nevertheless, human salt intake does not fit the biological model of a regulated sodium appetite. Indeed this archetypal 'wisdom of the body' fails us in all that has to do with behavioral regulation of this most basic need...

    Micah Leshem
    Psychology Department, University of Haifa, Haifa 31905, Israel

    Micah Leshem
    Department of Psychology, University of Haifa, Haifa 31905, Israel
    Physiol Behav 89:399-401. 2006
    ..Immediately after the stress, the rats were tested in an open field. We find that stress is mitigated proportionally: stress was reduced the more salient the other rat's cues were and the closer the rats were to each other...

    Micah Leshem
    Psychology Department, University of Haifa, Haifa 31905, Israel
    Dev Psychobiol 46:111-7. 2005
    ..Since preference for urine and NH4Cl covary during postnatal development, the high preference for NH4Cl in midterm sucklings might be because its ammonium flavor is similar to urine...

    Psychology Department and Brain and Behavior Center, University of Haifa, Haifa 31905, Israel
    Physiol Behav 78:409-14. 2003
    ..Our findings are indicative of a possible increased calcium appetite related to perturbed calcium metabolism in humans. The findings also suggest that for hemodialysis patients calcium added to foods might increase their palatability...
