INTRODUCTION Gastric electrical stimulation (GES) has been used for the treatment of obesity with unclear central mechanisms. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of GES on the neuronal activity in the ventromedial hypothalamus (VMH). METHODS Extracellular potentials of single neurons in VMH were recorded in 52 anesthetized rats. Neurons were classified as gastric distension-excitatory (GD-E) neurons or GD-inhibitory (GD-I) neurons. GES with four sets of parameters was… CONTINUE READING
