Microinjections of various alpha 1-adrenoceptor agonists including phenylephrine and phenylpropanolamine into the paravenricular hypothalamic nucleus (PVN) suppress food intake in rats, suggesting that this receptor type might act in opposition to previously identified facilatory PVN alpha 2-adrenoceptors in the modulation of feeding. In the present… CONTINUE READING
