Monoaminergic systems are important modulators of the responses to stress. Stress may influence feeding behavior, and the involvement of monoamines in the control of food intake is well recognized. We investigated the effects induced by chronic-restraint stress, 1 h a day, for 40 days, on eating behavior and on monoamines in distinct brain structures. Increased consumption of sweet pellets, and not of peanuts, was observed. Dopamine (DA), serotonin (5–HT), and their metabolites were measured by… CONTINUE READING
