The peptide galanin (GAL), when injected into the rat hypothalamus, is known to stimulate feeding behavior and affect the secretion of various hormones, including insulin and the adrenal steroid, corticosterone. To determine whether endogenous peptide levels shift in relation to natural rhythms of feeding and circulating hormone levels, rats were sacrificed at different times of the light/dark cycle, and their GAL levels were measured, via radioimmunoassay, in medial hypothalamic dissections… CONTINUE READING
