OBJECTIVE The aims of the present study were to determine whether increased body weight resulting from intracerebroventricular (ICV) glucocorticoid (dexamethasone) infusion in normal rats is associated, as in obesity, with changes in glucose metabolism and to investigate whether the parasympathetic nervous system is involved in the glucocorticoid-induced effects. RESEARCH METHODS AND PROCEDURES Male Sprague-Dawley rats were infused with ICV dexamethasone (2.5 microg/d) or its vehicle for 2… CONTINUE READING
