A convergence of evidence suggests that stimulation of lateral hypothalamic (LH) neurons can elicit eating, but the neurotransmitters that mediate this effect are unknown. To determine whether glutamate might be involved, it was injected through chronic guide cannulas directly into the LH of satiated adult male rats and consequent food intake was measured.(More)
To determine whether endogenous lateral hypothalamic (LH) glutamate and its N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors might participate in the stimulation of natural eating, LH injection of the NMDA antagonist D-(-)-2-amino-5-phosphonopentanoic acid (D-AP5) was tested in adult male rats for suppressive actions on feeding elicited by 1) NMDA, kainic acid or D,(More)
A critical element of accessibility research is the exploration and evaluation of ideas with representative users. However, it is often difficult to recruit these users, particularly in a timely manner. In this paper we report on the establishment of a large user pool created to facilitate accessibility research through recruiting sizeable numbers of older(More)
A critical element of accessibility research is the exploration and evaluation of ideas with representative users. However, it is often difficult to recruit such a range of users, particularly in a timely manner, nor is it easy for new researchers to understand how to recruit relevant populations or feel confident in communicating with older or(More)
