Feeding Behavior: Neural and Humoral Controls discusses the role of well-known neural or humoral substrates. This book describes the neural and humoral mechanisms whose participation in the control of feeding is understudied. Organized into 11 chapters, this book starts with an overview of the ingestive behaviors of altricial mammals that mature through three transformations. This text then proceeds with a discussion of the separateness of the suckling and adult ingestion in laboratory rat pups, which revealed the existence of a system for ingestive behavior that is different from suckling. Other chapters discuss the physiological research on the feeding behavior, which is centered on the hypothalamus. This book examines as well the major brain region that is involved in the control of food intake. The final chapter examines the role of central cholecystokinin in the satiating effect of ingested food. Veterinary scientists and researchers will find this book extremely useful.
