In order to elucidate the mechanism of action of the anorectic drug, mazindol, effects of electrophoretically applied mazindol were examined on glucose-sensitive and non glucose-sensitive neurons in the rat lateral hypothalamic area (LHA), which is functionally important in food intake control. Mazindol was found to significantly suppress the firing rate of… CONTINUE READING
