Taste neophobia is manifested behaviorally as lower intake of a novel, potentially dangerous tastant relative to the same tastant when it is perceived as safe and familiar. To further characterize this phenomenon, microstructural analysis of lick patterns was used to track the transition from novel to familiar for three tastants: saccharin, quinine and Polycose. The results revealed that in addition to an increase in the amount consumed (for saccharin and quinine but not Polycose), cluster size (an index of palatability) became larger as familiarity with the benign tastants increased. The current finding suggests that the pleasure of drinking increases as the novel, potentially dangerous tastant becomes accepted as safe.
