Serotonergic activity is depressed in the ventromedial hypothalamic nucleus of 12-day-old obese Zucker rats.

Abstract

We previously reported lower ventromedial hypothalamic nucleus (VMN) serotonergic activity in 11-wk genetically obese vs. lean Zucker rats. To determine whether the activity was secondary to metabolic alterations associated with this established obesity (e.g., significant hyperphagia and hyperinsulinemia), we examined monoaminergic activity in various brain… (More)
