The present study was designed to investigate the role of brain adrenergic alpha-2-receptors on feeding regulation of layer-type chicks. Intracerebroventricular injection of the adrenergic alpha-2-receptor agonist, clonidine, stimulated food intake. This effect was blocked by co-injection of the alpha-2-receptor antagonist, yohimbine, demonstrating that the alpha-2-receptor is related to stimulation of feeding in layer-type chicks. Stimulation of food intake caused by neuropeptide Y and beta… CONTINUE READING
