Basic Measures of Food Intake Chapter uri icon

abstract

  • This unit describes a method for measuring the consumption of a pellet diet during a 30-min testing session conducted during the late portion of the day. The procedure generates reliable and stable baseline measures of feeding, and is appropriate for assessing experimental manipulations that either enhance (e.g., injecting a peptide into the brain) or suppress feeding (e.g., systemic injections of amphetamine).
