Striatal regulation of morphine-induced hyperphagia: an anatomical mapping study

Both systemic and intracranial administration of morphine can result in spontaneous feeding in nondeprived rats. The present investigation was conducted to examine the involvement of the striatum in this phenomenon. Morphine sulfate (0, 0.5, 1.0, 5.0, 10.0, and 20.0 µg/0.5 µl) was microinjected into five discrete striatal subregions in non-deprived rats: the nucleus accumbens, the ventromedial striatum, the ventrolateral striatum, the anterior dorsal striatum, and the posterior dorsal striatum… CONTINUE READING
