1. Several neural peptides are known to stimulate feeding behaviour in mammalian species. The aim of this study was to elucidate whether central injection of mammalian motilin, melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) or galanin stimulates feeding in the neonatal chick. 2. None of the peptides applied here enhanced the food intake of the chick. 3. It is… CONTINUE READING
