Inhibition of feeding responses by the molluscicide, metaldehyde.


Metaldehyde, applied to the lips, inhibits spontaneous biting movements and disrupts rhythmic feeding motor output. Applied directly to the CNS, it induces a region of negetive slope conductance in the steady-state I-V curve, which could contribute towards generation of convulsant activity. Isolated muscle tissue (buccal mess, gut and foot) shows increased… (More)
