The effect of cholinergic stimulation of the lateral hypothalamus on muricide in rats was evaluated in two experiments. In Experiment 1, injections of the cholinergic agonist carbachol (5.0-20.0 micrograms) were found to facilitate muricide in rats that spontaneously killed mice. In Experiment 2, rats were induced to kill mice by food deprivation and then… CONTINUE READING
