We tested the hypothesis that cannabinoids modulate feeding in male guinea pigs, and correlated cannabinoid-induced changes in feeding behavior with alterations in glutamatergic synaptic currents impinging upon proopiomelanocortin (POMC) neurons of the hypothalamic arcuate nucleus. Feeding experiments were performed as follows: after a three-day acclimation(More)
We sought to determine whether sex differences exist for the cannabinoid modulation of appetite, body temperature and neurotransmission at pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) synapses. Gonadectomized male and female guinea pigs were outfitted to monitor core body temperature and injected with either the CB1 receptor agonist WIN 55,212-2 (1 mg/kg s.c.), antagonist(More)
