Abstract

The effect of coagulation of the dorsal hippocampus and mesencephalic reticular formation of the food response evoked by electrical stimulation of the lateral hypothalamus was studied in experiments on satiated waking rabbits. Unilateral coagulation of the dorsal hippocampus ipsilaterally or contralaterally to the stimulated hypothalamic “food center” led to lowering of the threshold of the food response and, in some cases, was accompanied by spontaneous eating. Unilateral coagulation of the region of the mesencephalic reticular formation ipsilaterally or contralaterally to the stimulated “food center,” on the other hand, was characterized by a marked increase in the threshold of the evoked food response. The mechanisms of the reciprocal effects of the dorsal hippocampus and mesencephalic reticular formation on the food response are discussed.
