Feeding by female rats during restricted access to food: Does estrogen influence eating during a diet?

A presentation by Amie Francis, student intern extraordinaire


Estrogen treated rats eat less than those treated with oil


Timeline


  • Does estrogen affect the rat’s ability to learn the feeding protocol?

  • Does estrogen affect the inhibitory gastric distension signals in ovariectomized (OVX) female rats?

What do we want to know?


Estrogen does not appear to affect rats’ ability to learn the restricted feeding protocol


Does estrogen affect the inhibitory gastric distension signals?


Rats exhibit higher fos+ activation in the NTS after eating


Conclusions:

Estrogen does not appear to affect rats’ ability to learn the eating protocol

More data is necessary to determine if neuronal activation the NTS is affected by estrogen.

Whatdoes it mean?
