Milk drinking elicits electroencephalographic (EEG) synchronization in the parieto-occipital cortex of cats. This EEG change is a reliable correlate of the consummatory phenomena involved in "relaxation" behavior. The effect of varying serotonin brain levels by administering P-chlorophenylalanine (PCPA) or 5-hydroxytryptophan (5HTP) on this response was studied in 25 young cats. Single or repeated injections (4-8 days) of 50, 100 or 150 mg/kg of PCPA resulted in a dose related decrease in the… CONTINUE READING
