'Disgusted' Rats Teaching Scientists About Nausea, Work May Lead to New Cancer Treatments

ScienceDaily (Oct. 5, 2012) — Nausea is a common and distressing side effect of many drugs and treatments. Unlike vomiting, nausea is not well understood, but new research by University of Guelph scientists may soon change that.

Guelph PhD student Katharine Tuerke, neuroscience researcher Cheryl Limebeer and Prof. Linda Parker in the Department of Psychology believe they've found the mechanism in the brain that is responsible for the sensation of nausea -- with the help of some "disgusted" rats.

Their study was published this week in Journal of Neuroscience.
