Food consumption has been linked with central dopaminergic system. The present study is conducted to note if any changes in food consumption occur in rats during chronic administration of drugs like amphetamine. DOPA and alpha methyldopa. Food was presented only for 6 hours in day and intake was measured after 3 and 6 hours. The results suggest that dopamine may have a role in the central control of appetite.
