TCDD-provoked aversion to foods in rats is a series of feeding studies in rats. The objective is to characterise acute food aversion behaviour after a small dose of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD).

The manuscripts of the studies have been recently published. [1] [2]

The original data can be found on this web page as zipped Excel and SPSS files. More user-friendly formats will be produced if needed.
