The influence of intracerebroventricular rat-CRF on the food-hoarding behavior of rats has been studied in relation to the animals' body weights. A group of six male rats was trained to feed every day from 1000 to 1200 h. Then their threshold for the onset of food hoarding was measured from the intercept of regression line of food hoarded during meal time vs. body weight with the x-axis. Thirty minutes before the hoarding session, the rats received 4 micrograms CRF, or saline control, in the… CONTINUE READING
