The forebrain, including the amygdala (AM) and hypothalamus, may be a higher brain center that modulates the activity of a brainstem neural system that influences ingestive behavior via descending projections. In this study, to elucidate the characteristics of sensory information processing in the forebrain in relation to this putative connection, we recorded neuronal activity in the AM and hypothalamus [lateral hypothalamic area (LHA), medial hypothalamic area (MHA)] of rats during… CONTINUE READING
