The time of food availability induces important behavioral and metabolic adaptations. Animals subjected to feeding restricted to a few daytime hours show increased locomotor activity and body temperature in anticipation of mealtime. In addition, animals under ad libitum feeding show a marked postprandial raise in body temperature and in thermogenesis. The areas of the brain commanding these responses to food are partially known. We investigated in the rat the role of the infralimbic area… CONTINUE READING
