Central injections of dopamine (DA) or epinephrine (EPI) have been found to suppress feeding behavior in hungry rats. In the present study, 24 different brain areas, in 299 animals, were examined to localize the precise region of catecholamine (CA) sensitivity. Essentially all sites outside the hypothalamus, as well as in the medial portion of the hypothalamus, were relatively or totally unresponsive to DA or EPI. The area of greatest sensitivity for both agonists (where they yielded a 50--70… CONTINUE READING
