The present study examines the effects of intracerebroventricular injections of histamine (HA) and two HA antagonists, the H(1) receptor antagonist chloropheneramine maleate (CM) and the H(2) receptor antagonist cimetidine (CIM), on food and water consumption and body temperature in chickens. Single-Comb White Leghorns (SCWL) and broiler cockerels were(More)
An experiment was conducted to investigate if bombesin (BM) elicits its effects on feeding through the release of corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF). Single Comb White Leghorn (SCWL) and broiler cockerels were stereotaxically implanted with a 23-gauge stainless steel cannula in the right lateral ventricle. Birds were infused with 0 or 0.5 microg BM, 5(More)
The effect of intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) injection of leptin was investigated using broiler and Single Comb White Leghorn (SCWL)-type chickens. These represent relatively fast- and slow-growing birds, respectively. The i.c.v. injection of leptin decreased food intake in both broilers and Leghorns in a dose-dependent manner. The most efficacious dose(More)
