Abstract

The effects of bilateral electrolytic lesions in the preterminal field of the nigrostriatal dopaminergic bundle were studied in male and female rats. Lesions of the caudate or the rostral putamen had no effect on food and water intake or body weight. These data are inconsistent with the current view that lateral hypothalamic aphagia and adipsia develop when the nigrostriatal dopaminergic bundle is only disrupted.
