Mice were evaluated using a high-throughput procedure to measure NaCl taste thresholds involving conditioned taste aversion (CTA), with oral self-administration of 150 mM LiCl as a conditioned stimulus followed by a series of 48-h two-bottle preference tests with increasing concentrations of NaCl.

Summary of procedures that were conducted
• intake monitoring Water intake. Daily.
• bottle choice test Sodium chloride solution taste threshold. Fluid intake.
• body weight
