Thomas R. Stratford and David Wirtshafter Lateral hypothalamic involvement in feeding elicited from the ventral pallidum European Journal of Neuroscience 37
Intense feeding can be elicited by injections of bicuculline into the VPm. We examined feeding following unilateral injections of bicuculline into the VPm made either ipsilateral or contralateral to a unilateral excitotoxic lesion of the LH in rats. Lesions of the LH attenuated feeding induced from the ipsilateral VPm, but significantly potentiated feeding elicited from the contralateral VPm. Thus the LH is causally involved in mediating the ingestive effects produced by activation of the VPm.
