Abstract : To establish neuronal regulation of feeding, the relationship among the electrical activities of the feeding and satiety centers in the hypothalamus, those of the limbic system and of the mesencephalic tegmentum were investigated by recording both evoked potentials and single unit discharges under acute experimental conditions. It became clear that the hypothalamic feeding mechanism is well maintained by the reciprocal activity between the feeding and satiety center as well as by a close linkage of the negative and positive feed-back system made by the relationships among the hypothalamus, limbic system and dorsomedial mesencephalic tegmentum.
