Hypothalamic input to brain stem neurons responsive to oropharyngeal stimulation

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine if electrical stimulation of diencephalic sites previously implicated in feeding behavior and metabolic homeostasis could influence the unit activity of caudal brain stem neurons receiving oropharyngeal input. Electrical stimulation of the chorda tympani nerve (CT) was used to first identify brain stem units. A… (More)
