Effect of ammonia via prepyriform cortex on regulation of food intake in the rat.


Studies were made on whether ammonia, which is an obligatory intermediate of amino acid metabolism, depresses the food intake of rats fed a low-casein (basal) diet containing imbalanced amino acid mixtures (imbalanced diets). Bilateral lesions in the prepyriform cortex caused normalization of food intake of rats fed amino acid-imbalanced diets, confirming… (More)
