We investigated whether dorsal hindbrain and/or peripheral cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript peptide (CARTp) acts to suppress gastric emptying of a caloric stimulus. Furthermore, effects of dorsal hindbrain CARTp on sucrose consumption and licking microstructure was studied, as well as the possible contribution of corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) receptors to mediate effects of CARTp downstream on emptying and sucrose intake. Rats bearing gastric fistulas received intragastric… CONTINUE READING
