Abstract

1. Several neural peptides are known to stimulate feeding behaviour in mammalian species. The aim of this study was to elucidate whether central injection of mammalian motilin, melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) or galanin stimulates feeding in the neonatal chick. 2. None of the peptides applied here enhanced the food intake of the chick. 3. It is suggested that motilin, MCH and galanin, at least those of mammalian origin, may not regulate feeding in neonatal chicks, when administered to the central nervous system.
