Activation of melanocortin 4 receptors (MC4-Rs) in brain nuclei associated with food intake profoundly influences consummatory behavior. Of these nuclei, the dorsal motor vagal nucleus (DMV), which has a dense concentration of MC4-Rs, is an important regulator of gastric tone and motility. Hence, the present study sought to examine the role of MC4-Rs in(More)
Nicotine's effect on food intake and body weight has been well documented; however, the relevant receptors underlying these effects have not been firmly established. The purpose of the present study was to: (1) identify the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) subtype involved in food intake and body weight; (2) establish whether food intake and body(More)
