Abstract

Paraventricular (PVN) hypothalamic norepinephrine (NE) injections which facilitated feeding were nonetheless found to reduce both the unconditioned preference for saccharin and starch-conditioned preferences for almond odor and lemon taste, as well as enhancing aversion to quinine. These results add to the evidence that PVN NE elicits eating by attenuating a satiety signal.
