Abstract

But for two exceptions, attempts to inhibit feeding behaviour by direct intrahypothalamic administration of glucose have been unsuccessful. The effects of other nutrients have yet to be assessed. We have found that microinjections of balanced amino-acid solutions into dorsolateral perifornical hypothalamic tissue, where consummatory behaviours are obtained with electrical stimulation, inhibit feeding in rats.
