Regulation of the gastric emptying of glucose.
Two brain cholecystokinin receptors: implications for behavioral actions
Integration of vagal afferent responses to gastric loads and cholecystokinin in rats.
An integration of signals elicited by exogenous CCK and gastric loads at the level of vagal afferent fibers is demonstrated and aspects of CCK's inhibition of food intake may derive fromCCK's ability to mimic and amplify vagalAfferent activity provoked by meal-related gastric events is implied.
Gastric loads and cholecystokinin synergistically stimulate rat gastric vagal afferents.
Data demonstrate that, in rats, signals produced by combined gastric load and exogenous CCK administration are integrated peripherally and interact synergistically, and suggest that signals arising from the vagus may provide sufficient information for the synergistic inhibition of food intake produced by combinations of gastric loads and exogeneous CCK.

There were significant positive relationships between scores on compulsive, borderline and histrionic personality disorder scales and the probability of obsessions and compulsions.
Calories and gastric emptying: a regulatory capacity with implications for feeding.
The precision of this regulation of gastric emptying is sufficient to give it a role in preabsorptive satiety and the control of caloric intake.
PTSD: a problematic diagnostic category.
Cholecystokinin suppresses food intake by inhibiting gastric emptying.
CCK can be considered a link in a chain of physiological elements producing the short-term satiety that leads to the appropriate interruption of a meal or bout of feeding behavior, and depends upon inhibition of gastric emptying, which then leads to gastric distention with further food injection.

The prevalence of personality disorders in adults examined in the second stage of the Eastern Baltimore Mental Health Survey in 1981 was 5.9% (9.3% when provisional cases were included), and those with personality disorders were judged by the psychiatrists to be more in need of treatment; however, only 21% were receiving treatment.
