Paraventricular hypothalamic lesions and medial hypothalamic knife cuts produce similar hyperphagia syndromes.

Abstract

The hyperphagia/obesity syndrome produced by paraventricular hypothalamic (PVH) lesions and that produced by medial hypothalamic (MH) knife cuts were compared in adult female rats. Each treatment produced hyperphagia and overweight on a chow diet, although the PVH effect was less than the knife-cut effect. Each treatment also produced qualitatively similar… (More)
