The anterior piriform cortex (APC) may house the sensor for essential amino acid homeostasis in the brain. Several lines of evidence suggest that the APC is activated shortly after ingestion of an amino acid deficient diet. We examined the averaged evoked potentials elicited in the APC by stimulation of the lateral olfactory tract, in awake, behaving rats before and after feeding basal (BAS), threonine devoid (DEV), or corrected (COR) diets to determine directly whether the APC is activated… CONTINUE READING
