Medial hypothalamic serotonin: role in circadian patterns of feeding and macronutrient selection.

Abstract

Hypothalamic serotonin (5-HT) is believed to have an inhibitory effect on food intake in a variety of species. To define more precisely the nature of this effect, this study investigated the effects of medial hypothalamic 5-HT injection on natural patterns of macronutrient intake in freely feeding rats. Serotonin (5-20 nmol) was injected directly into the… (More)
