Comparison of the metabolic and behavioral disturbances following paraventricular- and ventromedial-hypothalamic lesions.

Abstract

Lesions of the ventromedial hypothalamus (VMH) result in an obesity syndrome with several metabolic and behavioral manifestations. It has also been reported that damage to the paraventricular hypothalamus (PVH) leads to changes characteristic of obesity. However, little is known about the consequence of PVH lesions, especially in contrast to the extensive… (More)
