Previous research has shown that the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus (PVN) is an important site of action for the effects of estradiol on feeding behavior. The recent finding that estrogenic stimulation of the PVN lowers food intake without inducing lordosis suggests that the effects of estradiol on feeding and sexual behaviors are organized separately within the brain. Whether the effects of estradiol on food intake can be attenuated by PVN lesions is therefore a question of… CONTINUE READING
