Abstract

MANY species eat less than normal when deprived of water, and this may be due to a central nervous thirst factor inhibiting feeding1,2, thereby promoting water conservation3. It may be that many factors that increase thirst also reduce feeding, and this appears to be true for hypertonicity4 and hyperthermia5. The recent finding 6 that drinking can be induced by intracranial injection of angiotensin in rats suggests that angiotensin may also suppress feeding.
